Melbourne architectural practice Baenziger Coles recently designed a magnificent oceanfront residence in Ladysmith, located on the 49th parallel on the east coast of Vancouver Island British Columbia, Canada. Titled ‘Canada House’, we are excited to see Melbourne designers creating such great work abroad.

For privacy, the design response purposely turned its back on the approaching forest road and opened its arms to embrace the magnificent ocean views and passing marine life. Selected natural local materials and finishes complement the surrounding site and reflected the raw beauty of the landscape.
