This is a stunning modern architecture lake house designed by architect Fook Weng Chan. The home is situated in a peaceful mountain environment near Vancouver, Canada. It represents a lot of class and manages to mix gracefully with the surrounding natural area.
Modern Architecture Lake House by Fook Weng Chan
The modern lake house has a skeleton construction that allows the use of a lot of glass in the façade. And glass is just what this home needs to reflect the beautiful blue sky and present a view of the glacial lake and magnificent mountain peaks ahead. The front façade of the house is covered with cedar and copper. There is a large curved terrace that looks to the mountain. The terrace together with the arc shaped roof construction in the middle give the house a more dramatic look.

A stone winding path leads to the main entrance in the back of the modern lake house residence. On the way to the door one is sucked in by the natural serenity of the yard that combines stone, plants, trees and a pool feature. The façade of the building here is clad in basalt. It has a strong solid look that reminds of a stronghold a bit. In the middle of the stone wall stands the parade door crowned with a large interesting penthouse construction that attracts one’s the attention from afar.

Upon entering the modern lake house the overwhelming view of the mountains is visible straight ahead through the windows of a spacious open plan living area. Kitchen, dining room and living room are sheltered in this warm welcoming place bathed in daylight thanks to the two-level glazing.

There is a second level that leads to the bedroom area and the curved terrace of the modern lake house. There is another large terrace in the lower level suitable for outdoor dinner. Quite a number of stairs descend to a wooden deck placed in front of the house right next to the water. All the terraces and the deck have modern glass railing that serves as an elegant finish to the building.
