Canadian Gulf Islands, 2006
Collaborated with Robert A.M. Stern Architects
JGA designed the interiors for this 12,000 square foot summer house and outbuildings in the Canadian Gulf Islands. The site is a wooded peninsula with magnificent water views on three sides. The clients, a large, active family, wanted a sophisticated yet livable home, able to accommodate their guests and extended family, and the many activities they enjoy.
The interior detailing represents a modern interpretation of the English Arts and Crafts movement. An eclectic mix of antiques and custom pieces, along with the Client’s growing collection of Pacific Northwest art, creates an atmosphere of relaxed elegance. A restrained palette of materials, color and fabric contribute to the modern take on traditional style.
