KITS POINT BEACH HOUSE
Facing one of Vancouver’s iconic beaches sits a home with a long history and literary pedigree. Nobel Prize winner Alice Munro once called it home, and wrote of 1950s Kitsilano as having streets of “high wooden houses crammed with people living tight.”
The owner has a deep attachment to the 3600-square-foot home, having waited many years to restore it and claim it as her personal sanctuary. In a top-to-bottom renovation that included lifting the home to re-pour foundations,
Kelly Deck Design worked with the architect to preserve the essential spirit of the building, offering a more spacious and elegant interpretation of beachside living.
The home is a study in resolved energies. Luxuriously finished, it’s both contemporary and tactile. The architecture’s angularity is checked by the softness of furnishings and interior finishes. And, appropriate to its context, its spirit is buoyant.
A true contemporary urban beach house.
