Imagine a village within a village, a series of timber-topped buildings peeking out from the forest, overlooking a revitalized marina. Beyond that is Howe Sound, the world’s most southerly fjord, with a backdrop of snow-capped mountains. This is Horseshoe Bay Sanctuary, a collection of villas designed by modernist architect Paul Merrick and located on one of British Columbia’s most spectacular waterfronts. The inspiration is Portofino, Italy, but the vibe is 100% West Coast, especially in the Boat House, which is home to a gathering hall for wine tastings and yoga workshops, a world-class fitness facility, and a Chris-Craft powerboat for cruising around the harbor.

And there is nothing subtle about it, from its gravity-defying design to its graphic facade to its ultramodern interiors. In fact, Vancouver House is such a departure from its surroundings that it has given rise to a brand-new neighborhood: the Beach District. Here is a chance to be a part of a microrevolution in urban architecture.

Set in the heart of Downtown Vancouver, this cloudlike tower was inspired first and foremost by the emotions it wanted to evoke and by a desire for interrelatedness with its surrounding environment.
