2014 Modern Homes Sales: 

1770 29th st grid

West Vancouver Contemporary House
Custom built home designed by Christopher Boyzk of Christopher Boyzk Architects.  This home was originally designed as Boyzk's personal residence, as a result the build quality was fantastic and the dramatic architecture has a timeless fresh feel nestled in the woods and on the cliffside in the Altamont area of West Vancouver.  This inspiring contemporary design was designed 23 years ago and still feels ultra modern and in-line with current design trends. Many one-of-kind architectural details are found within this home including: square edges in all rooms, a curved glass walkway on the upper floor (shown in the photo above), double height windows in the main living areas, and cantilevered balconies coming out of the main living areas connecting the dweller to the outdoors and nearby trees.
