Lakecrest Residence sits atop a rocky cliff above a lake in Whistler, British Columbia. The 5000 square foot home is surrounded by panoramic views of mountains, lake and forest, making it a difficult build, with a spectacular outcome.
The social areas—living room, kitchen, dining area and media rooms — are organized along a spacious "circulation spine" that creates gathering spaces facing out to the views; the spine terminates at the Great Room which cantilevers over the existing steep terrain and opens up to the views in all directions.
The private areas — bedrooms and baths — are located in a separate wing that open onto a more private courtyard and backyard.
It’s not a huge home, and it’s not the most high-end with the finishes, but when you open your eyes in the morning and see those views, well, it’s all worth it.
