The Glass House Project

The Glass House was built in Gibsons on the beautiful Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. This high bank waterfront home is designed almost completely of glass encased in wood frames spanning from floor to ceiling, supported by laminated beams and posts providing an unbelievable view of the Salish Sea from almost every corner of the house.

The abundance of tall windows allows the landscape to seemingly flow right through the house. The home was commissioned by a known museum director and cultural scientist in Europe and his wife, a renowned author concerning the study of architecture. The pair were inspired by Philip Johnson’s Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut, which was built in the late 1940’s and is a piece of architecture famous the world over for its minimalistic domesticity.
