The Pender Harbour Estate Mirroring a Magnificent Landscape in Canada

This modern residence listed by Jamie J. MacDougall made me think of Scandinavian design in the scenic Northern islands. But the real location of The Pender Harbour House is in British Columbia, Canada, on a generously-sized lot of 613 square meters. With extensive views of the natural shoreline and neighboring forest, the residence is an oasis of tranquility for its inhabitants. Its jaw-dropping purchasing price of $20 million hints the project’s opulence and modern features.

Built in 2011 from scratch, the residence was equipped with state-of-the-art amenities: “Exposed architectural reinforced concrete walls are combined with Pennsylvania Blue Stone floors and Douglas Fir beams inside to create a delicate warmth to host the main residence with 6 fully en-suited bedrooms. Each bedroom enjoys total privacy, 180-degree breathtaking views and its own access outdoors“. I must say I am not too thrilled about the cost-benefits relationship when it comes to this project, but the location is truly breathtaking.

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
