This Okanagan Lake vacation home was built from the ground up to be the centre for all things summer. Designed with an active family in mind, it uses materials that are forgiving, not precious, from the pre-distressed fumed plank French oak floors to the sumptuous-yet-summer-proof lounge chairs outside. The open-concept design allows for a free flow of people and activities, and strategic windows and fold-away glass doors seamlessly blend indoors with out.

Guests are always welcome, and so we created flexible entertaining and sleeping space for easy hosting. The result is a home that will last for generations. It’s contemporary, relaxing, rugged, unpretentious—and has a defined purpose for pleasure.
