A Modern Summer Home Cantilevers Over The Picturesque Pender Harbour

Synthesis Design has created this modern summer home built into a dramatic steeply sloping, narrow site with overlapping waterfront and rear setbacks in Maderia Park, British Columbia, Canada.

After many design panels, relaxation requests for variances, along with the design of a residential sewage treatment plant, approvals were granted. 

The residence dramatically overhangs the ocean with large cantilevered decks, creating an extension of the living spaces through large garage-style doors.

While understated from the street, the dwelling exposes itself from the waterfront. 

The roof opens up to the view in the opposite direction to the slope of the land creating an even more imposing facade than its three levels.

Set in picturesque Pender Harbour, often called “Venice of the North” Villa Vertigo is a welcoming place for family and friends who often create their own adventures.

Stepping inside this home, you will notice that it is designed with a reverse plan. The entry, kids cave, and playroom are located on the upper level.

The main level is divided between the living room and kitchen, while the bedrooms are below with direct access to the ocean via a cantilevered concrete deck.
