Futuristic Whistler Abode Is Anything But Square

New, 1 comment


There's not a right angle in sight at this futuristic house in Whistler, British Columbia. Designed by Patkau Architects, the post-post-modern design was inspired by the property's wedge-shaped plot that barely had enough space for a garage and entrance. The architects also wanted snow to shed easily from the angled roofs, while still including plenty of windows to take advantage of the valley views. The open-concept main space contains the living, dining, and kitchen areas, as well as an outdoor covered deck. And while contemporary mountain design is all the rage, the house's jumbled, Picasso-like aesthetic is rare in ski country. What do you think, Curbediverse? Does the geometric design strike a chord? Or do all these angles fall a bit flat?
