Groveland House in West Vancouver, Canada boasts of sweeping views of the Burrard Inlet and downtown Vancouver. With three large floors and an encompassing roof, its blueprint is an architectural statement in itself. Grand, luxurious, and ultra-modern, the home is a stunning example of contemporary design.

Grand and luxurious, the house features its very own putting green at the uppermost level.

The house is divided into three levels. At ground level, one has access to intimate views of natural bedrock through the lounge area. The middle level has the entertainment and pool areas. On the upper floor is a putting green.

Groveland House, despite its modern contemporary design, exudes that lived-in ambiance.

Inside is an open plan, double-height living area. The materiality of the house is best appreciated from here. It’s an elaborate mixture of marble, concrete, hardwood, steel, and glass. These materials gives the house a lived-in feel.

Notes from the Architect:

A gentle three-story sloping site offers significant connections to grade on all levels of the house: a putting green on the upper floor, pool and entertainment on the middle level and more intimate views to natural bedrock al the lower level.

A wide footprint and generous building area allows the central living portions of the house to expand into double-height spaces. These tall spaces interact with a large roof plane with a shaped underside. This roof acts to bind the house together and create diverse, deep covered exterior spaces at all levels.
