Ambassador Residence

Whistler, BC

Appearing as a complementary extension to the extremely sloping site, this architecturally expressive 3-storey residence features a cantilevering main floor and sloped rear structural wall, both giving shape to its unique parallelogram form. The structure is comprised of cantilevered light wood frame with steel elements, atop a cast-in-place concrete basement structure. Inside, precise detailing accents the architectural features, including a custom wood staircase and slender steel columns. The number of columns is limited in order to provide open living spaces. The roof structure tapers down to a thin section while still accommodating the high snow loads of the Whistler location. The main residential portion rises above a standalone garage at ground level, which is comprised of cast-in-place concrete, and supports landscaping elements.
