Arno Matis Architecture has designed Floating House, which is a fusion of contemporary east-Asian, and west coast design influences. Located in Vancouver, Canada, this single-family residence has a total floor area of 4,000ft² (372m²).
This highly innovative private residence breaks new ground with an architectural concrete envelope that uses a completely unique white concrete mix custom developed exclusively for the project. The project is a fusion of contemporary east-Asian, and west coast design influences. The composition appears to float on a large reflecting pool set within an oriental garden setting
Large expanses of glazing and sliding doors are framed in African mahogany wood and screened with a dynamic architectural wood screen. The interiors flow with cascading floor slabs and dramatic volumes as unnecessary partitions are removed to create interior ‘exhibition’ spaces. The minimalist interior finishing details include stone slab floors, a suspended main stair of steel and hardwood; floating ceilings; and suspended custom fireplaces.
