On Golden Pond

Whistler, BC
House, 2700 sq ft
Completion: 2002

Reclining gracefully in its private totem garden, the twenty year old log home majestically keeps watch of its resident family totems, bronzed bears and big horn sheep. The owners who refer to their cabin as “On Golden Pond” wished to retain the simple integrity of the existing log structure while gently romancing its spaces with a warmer palette and up to date amenities. This involved a pairing back to the basic structure, adding to the master suite and guest bedroom above, installing a new kitchen and new fittings for all rooms, resulting in a tranquil space that remains true to the spirit of its natural setting.
