Situated on the tidal flats of Centennial Beach, the Boundary Bay Residence was originally conceived and realized by locally renowned Architect Daniel Evan White in 1990. A master of balance and the interplay between shape and form, the unassuming modernist architect, who began his career under the mentorship of Arthur Erickson, was responsible for hundreds of residences up and down the West Coast of Canada.
Boundary Bay Residence was bought by the current owners in 2015 with a view to sensitively remodel the home. Their primary objectives included: enhance street presence and clarify entry sequence; reprogram exterior living areas to refine relationships to the site; and building envelope remediation.
Respecting Dan White’s original geometry and architectural language, a new approach to detailing and planning resolution was brought to the project by Frits Vries Architects. The house, now thoughtfully refreshed, provides a bright, joyful space reflective of its new owners.
The renovation work sought to build upon Dan White’s commitment to geometrical consistency which drives the architectural language of the home. Indoor and outdoor spaces were held in equal regard, to the extent that those delineations are constantly blurred.
