Buckhorn Place by Burgers Architecture

Buckhorn Place is a mountainside residence in British Columbia, Canada. Designed by Burgers Architecture in collaboration with Sophie Burke Design, the home was completed in 2018.

One of our challenges was to take a space that is very contemporary with many hard surfaces and make sure that it was still family friendly, cozy, calm and inviting. On an architectural level, we worked with the builders to create functional details such as solid baseboards and casings concealed to look like seamless drywall returns. Perfect for kids, ski boots, dogs, etc. On a design level we worked to add organic, natural elements through our use of materials and finishes. The den for instance, the one room which has minimal natural light, has grey wool wallpaper on all walls and a built in sofa to ensure it feels comfortable and warm. The powder room and eating nook and custom bunkbeds are clad in solid hemlock to add warmth and texture. Ceramics from a local designer add an earthy, elemental feel. SBD was involved in every aspect of this design. From the the layout, space planning, staircase and millwork to the bedding, towels, artwork and vases, we were able to execute on a vision of serene simplicity and warmth.
