This unique home was built on a mountain side completely surrounded by the natural beauty of the Sooke Hills, Juan de Fuca Strait and the Olympic Mountains. It was designed to be cantilevered out over a cliff using heavy steel I beams engineered to be anchored back into the mountain.
Here again the client was interested the “post industrial” look with the extensive use of weathering steel (Cortan) for exterior cladding and some interior finishes.
Decks made extensive use of Duragrate molded fiberglass deck grating used extensively in commercial applications. Railings consisted of “gun metal” powder coated posts and top rails with stainless steel cable spaced 4” on center.
Heated Concrete Floors
Floors through out are done in a polished concrete topping with in-floor radiant heat.
The site was a very sensitive native plant area and great lengths were taken to not do any blasting on the site to keep the area pristine and undisturbed as much as possible.
