Single-family home in Whistler Cay

Cedar Grove Lane, Whistler

Nestled within Whistler’s valley, this location posed a distinctive obstacle with its soft ground, demanding the creation of a custom, oversized foundation for the dwelling. Despite the challenging terrain, the outcome is a remarkable home characterized by clean lines and effective design. Architect Chris Hunter ingeniously integrated the necessary steel posts and beams for the floor-to-ceiling windows into his architectural vision, showcasing them prominently and making a visually striking statement.

Through strategic placement of steel posts, engineer Adrien Benech engineered a structural masterpiece capable of supporting a 12-foot overhang over the upper patio—an impressive feat considering Whistler’s substantial snowfall. This innovative approach not only ensures functionality but also adds a touch of architectural refinement to the residence.
