The Armada House in Victoria, British Columbia, details by Abstract Developments:
“It is as if “Armada” was sculpted in place. With a harmoniously balanced footprint carved into the land and an abstract design, it creates a distinct presence. Contemporary lines employ wood, steel, stone, and glass in beautiful balance. Custom mill work and cherry built-ins punctuate every energy efficient room (radiant in-floor heated).
The private terraced decks offer ocean views, perfect for relaxing and entertaining.
The five-foot VG fir pivoting front door opens to a 24′ tall curved-roof atrium that cascades with light. Curved steps lead port side to open living space surrounded by floor to ceiling glass. An environmentally friendly Bamboo and brushed granite kitchen features a 6″ thick terrazzo eating bar, open to the dining and living area. A double-sided gas fireplace and open cherry display wall look through to the atrium beyond.
The Master Suite offers views of the ocean from a curved built-in bed. The en-suite bath employs his and her vanities, a Japanese soaker tub, and a roomy slate shower/steam room. The walk-in closet reveals more cherry built-ins with en-suite laundry.
“Armada” exemplifies modern design; the style, composition, and flow of indoor and outdoor spaces make this the ideal home for living & entertaining, showcasing curves and angles that delight the eye.”
