Design-Build

Luxury Modern Home on Shuswap Lake

This luxury modern home is one-part renovation and one-part new build. The homeowners wanted to design and build a home that would allow the entire family to gather and reconnect for generations to come. The result is a home that consists of two wings, one with five bedrooms, including a spacios master suite, and the other is a large open-concept family and entertaining room that opens on to the patio with views of the beachfront below.

Kevin and Karen wanted a home that felt like a modern cabin. Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, Denis designed the home to encompass lots of natural materials, including stone and warm fir ceilings. The home also boasts features like a sunken barbeque pit, sauna, home gym, theatre room, and extra-large kitchen designed to large dinners for family and friends after a day on the lake.

Attention to detail is what comes to mind. Professional and talented. All the trades I consider artists of their trade and were better than I ever expected. I would definitely recommend Apchin Design.
