Tucked along British Columbia’s idyllic Sunshine Coast, the angular Halfmoon Bay Cabin is designed and owned by architect Patrick Warren of Frits de Vries Architects + Associates and built by Vernon Construction. The dramatic dark exterior – Western Red Cedar coated in Sansin SDF Onyx – contrasts nicely with the natural wooded setting. Inside, the Western Red Cedar walls and soffits are treated with lye process and then coated with Sansin SDF in a white hue that enhances the natural light in the tranquil space. The design was inspired by a combination of American coastal architecture and Japanese ryokans (inns). The use of natural materials and floor-to-ceiling windows along with Sansin’s low VOC, enviro-friendly wood protection products connect the home to nature and elevate the structure’s low impact footprint in this park-like setting.
