Bowen Island is approximately 30 minutes by ferry from Vancouver, BC. The property is south facing, with a view over the Straight of Georgia and Vancouver. The design was inspired by the old fish and boat storage structures common in the fishing villages dotted along the B.C. coastline. Integrated into the process from these structures is a simple, linear, utilitarian methodology where roof and walls are cladded in the same materials, creating a seamless transition between structure and size.
