Patkau Architects has designed an incredible angular house that melds tradition and modernity to perfection. In truth, the structure looks more futuristic than anything else, however the use of warm wood materials makes it appear much more approachable and contemporary.

Striking a bold stance, the angular house is located on a northwest slope with panoramic views of Whistler Valley in southwest British Columbia. The interior of the angular house continues the sharp corners and overall geometric feel. It boasts a ton of large windows, which lets in natural light. The temperature is also naturally regulated and ventilated for the most part by drawing air from the lowest level to vent at the top. People will appreciate this eco-consciousness, especially since it doesn't compromise style or quality.
