7650 Finch – “North Beach”
This Modern Cliff House Seamlessly Knits Into the Okanagan Lakefront.
Walls of glass, horizontal roof planes, and a natural material palette enable this expansive home to feel like an extension of a dramatic mountain side landscape.
“Constant ingenuity” was essential in the construction of the Cliff House, a contemporary, twostory residence with open-plan living areas feature rift sawn white-oak floors, teak ceilings, and plaster walls that provide a soft contrast to the hard steel-beams and lines.
A natural material palette comprising plaster walls, local rock, and timber surfaces throughout tie the 4,800-square-foot home into the landscape and imbue the interiors with a sense of warmth.
“The project site forced creativity from the start,” says Edward West Luxury Homes management team and Planning, a local architecture practice with intimate knowledge of the property, having designed several buildings on the south end of the site. This time, the new property owners sought a contemporary residence facing south down Okanagan Lake.
The architects add: “We decided early on that defining the shape with large horizontal planes was necessary to give the home a sense of ‘groundedness,’ and this concept came back over and over as we made decision about which direction to run wood grain, how to layout out cabinetry pieces, fixture selections etc.—always going back to that long, linear concept.”
