Neighbourhood: New Westminster

If you're not already familiar with Battersby Howat Architects then you should definitely check out all of their awesomeness here. We are big fans of their designs, their process, and the consistently beautiful aesthetic they bring to every single project. Clearly we're not the only ones to appreciate their work as they have won numerous prestigious awards and have been featured in a plethora of design savvy publications such as Wallpaper, Azure, Dwell, and Surface just to name a few.

Now let's focus on this fine example of their craftsmanship on Archer Street. Located on a hillside in New Westminster overlooking the river, is an ideal perch for this 2,650 square foot home. The street facade is bold and referential to mid-century modern design with an emphasis on the modern. Beautiful knotty cedar siding with a locally sourced low VOC stain is the perfect blend of form and function. The windows and sliding doors were designed to allow flush installation on the interior and exterior. The windows are strategically located to allow the homeowners to experience the changing light conditions in a meaningful way year round. The inside is just as special with custom millwork throughout and a fine palette of materials such as ash, laminate, and satin lacquer. Flooring is polished concrete on the main with engineered ash above.

The design is second to none, and we can't say enough about this beautiful property. It is truly a work of art.
