Architecture Design of Eaves House
Description About The Project
Eaves House designed by McLeod Bovell Modern Houses that offers spectacular views to English Bay, the Vancouver skyline, and the Stanley Park peninsula are spread across the horizon to the South and South-East. This house formally comprised of a hovering concrete plinth at the main floor which sits underneath two broad eaves. Also, the plinth forms a new “ground” in the air which obscures a large auto – court at the basement floor and creates privacy by masking the road and windows of adjacent houses below. The two extruded roof masses above similarly serve to edit out the suburban foreground while framing and focusing vistas toward the water.
Moreover, the program at the main and upper floor stretched along the length of the site, in parallel with the expansive east-flanking outdoor spaces which allow indoors spaces to expand outward. Front to back, the house steps out of its own way in a sequence of “views behind view” that creates an unfolding cinematic experience when moving between spaces.
On the other hand, the design strategy results in an unconventional street-level elevation that. Due to the low angle of view on the approach — largely suppresses the conventional reading of walls, floors, and windows. Also, the designer take advantage from the location, brings the views to outside from every corner of the house such as living room, dining room, bedroom. All things make this house become an ideal home to live and enjoy the life.

Text by the Architects: The Eaves House exists at the interface between a residential neighborhood below and an undeveloped forested ravine above. The long and narrow cross-pitched site is asymmetrical with a pan-handle shape. Views to English Bay, the Vancouver skyline, and the Stanley Park peninsula are spread across the horizon to the south and south-east. Neighborhood development in this area is regulated by specific design guidelines that encourage roof forms rather than strong volumetric expression.
