Fab 40: Level Design, Vancouver
If you're looking for an antidote to expensive housing and still think pre-fab is fabulous, Vancouver-based Level Design could have the answer. Brad Cameron has created the Still House, a custom designed post and beam home conceived by the architect as a paean to West Coast Zen and naturally harvested BC wood.
There are eight different models, from budget-conscious Glulam versions to houses made from salvaged old-growth softwood (often culled, perfectly preserved, from the bottom of lakes), meaning that the Still House is equally at home in rural or urban settings. State of the art window walls offer a seamless connection to the surrounding landscape and make this the ideal dwelling for the eco-minded modernist.
