Architecture Wednesday: Lakecrest Residence

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.

Perfect for impromptu bear entertaining!

I'm sold! The design of the outside with lines is clean and chic, and with the woods, the stone and the white inside is stunning. But your right...the views and locales are the sellers. Plus, one could streak one day with prying eyes.

"It’s not a huge home" what reality is a 5K home not considered huge? It is lovely tho.

Been to Whistler mountain when we lived in Vancouver. Whistler is the place for skiing in Vancouver, one of the world's most scenic cities - the mountains, the beach, what more could you ask?

I meant as compared to some of the much larger homes I've shown.
