Perched on a distinctive outcrop above Alta Lake in Whistler, The Rock is an eyrie of a mountain retreat that makes the most of the surrounding views. Inspired by a Frank Lloyd Wright quote – “No house should ever be on a hill. It should be of the hill. Belonging to it” – the architect designed a contemporary family home rising from a series of landscaped levels cut into and built out of the mountainside.
Comprising six bedrooms, a cinema room, gym, wine room, pool and guest house, the design reflects the client’s deep appreciation of the site’s natural beauty. Entering the house continues the feeling of passing through the landscape.
