Garret Cord Werner designed the Forest House, a modern residence located near Vancouver, Canada.
Description by Garret Cord Werner:
The architecture & interiors of this new home design by Garret Cord Werner represents a high quality of new construction on a modest budget.
Over 20 ft. high concrete walls frame the dramatic entry into the home that features a floating open riser staircase. The home was designed to maximize light & to make one feel as much a part of the forest surrounding the home as possible.
Oversized sliding glass doors & clear story windows are used to reinforce this inside-out relationship to the garden.
Upstairs, a signature feature of our work is what we call a sky garden. This is an exterior garden that is enclosed & open to the sky. It provides a private green space & a wonderful light filled experience that is not expected on an upper floor.
