Minimalist Weekend Retreat With A View In Japan Would Suit A Lions Bay Address

With our city now so laughably unaffordable, thousands of Vancouverites are stuck imagining wonderful homes instead of living in them. “Spaced” is a record of our minds wandering the world of architecture and design, up and away from the unrewarding realities of shoebox condos, dark basement suites, and sweet fuck all on Craigslist.

(via) This minimalist house overlooking the Pacific near Osaka was built into a terraced hillside as a weekend retreat for clients keen on taking it easy (the big bath is a dead giveaway). Described as a “playground for grownups” by local architecture firm Process5 Design, the “T Weekend Residence” comes complete with several decks (including a stunning rooftop promenade) as well as its very own swing. We’d happily take ours somewhere near the Village of Lions Bay on the Sea-To-Sky Highway overlooking Howe Sound.

An Isolated Cabin in Wales for a BC Backyard

We want this beautiful Welsh hideaway - clad in local slate with an interior of birch plywood - a lot closer to home.

We’d Totally Live in This Danish ‘Krane’ if It Overlooked Vancouver’s Crab Park

The engine room of this massive crane on the shore of Copenhagen was renovated to include a spa, a meeting room and a suite for two.

Trading a City Shoebox For a Mountain Retreat

This small house overlooking the Austrian Alps would suit the equally isolated acreage in BC that we have in mind for it.

A Zeppelin-Shaped Cabin for Finn Slough

The Jules Verne-like "Mr. Plocq’s Caballon" is located on the shore of the Loire estuary in France, but we want it much closer.
