D’Arcy Jones (BEDS’97) Architects takes 2019 top magazine honours!
Deep Cove House by D’Arcy Jones (BEDS’97) Architects has been selected as one of Dezeen’s top 10 Canadian houses of 2019.
Canadian studio D’Arcy Jones Architects has designed this clifftop house in Vancouver to be “part look-out tower, part courtyard and part landform”.
D’Arcy Jones Architects’ Deep Cove House is notable in its contrasting front and rear facades. Its patio and garden open up to expansive ocean views, while its street-facing facade is closed off and windowless for maximum privacy.
The local studio integrated the house within a hilly site north of downtown Vancouver. The walls of its upper portion are slanted to help reduce glare and allow water to run off, including from its wrap-around windows.
In addition, the firm’s Double Header House is on the cover of Azure’s Annual Houses issues with the title: D’Arcy Jones Creates a Multi-Gen Marvel in Victoria, B.C.
The sharply angled home in the B.C. capital takes multi-generational housing in a distinctly modern direction.
