The growing trend in modern design and architecture is to create homes that are one with their surroundings. Draped in a hood of green that offers plenty of seclusion, the Southlands Residence in Vancouver is all about the perfect synergy between interiors and the exterior. Smartly placed concrete walls, wooden partitions and sliding glass doors combine privacy with unabated views of the many sights and sounds outside.
Designed by DIALOG, the residence is set next to a year-round stream and the lush green outdoors become an integral part of the contemporary interiors. Glass and wood have been used extensively in the design of the new home that replaced an existing structure on the lot. While glass provided seamless connectivity with the topography, warm wooden tones offered both privacy and modern accents.
