Inspired Eclectic and Organic Style of Pacific Northwest

HarmonyHomeProjects

We recently completed a trip through Canadian Pacific Coast  (mainly inland British Columbia and Vancouver Island). During our trip we searched for an interesting architecture than can serve as an inspiration and a reference for future projects. 

With its lush forests, rugged coast and long rainy season, the Pacific coast has developed a style that is informal, organic, rustic and above all eclectic. 

Here, we noticed overlapping elements of architecture: 

  • Design as a tribute to nature makes use of an open floor plan and native materials--both significant elements of early regional Modernism 
  • The decor often reveals nuances of Japanese design or Scandinavian design
  • Clean-lines, light, natural materials, and neutral tones combined with bright colours

While the styles vary, sensitivity to the environment and a desire to accentuate the natural beauty of the region lie at the heart of almost every design 

We love this style here are some photos. Enjoy!

Frank Lloyd Wright: Nature Inspired Modern Design and Architecture - Lessons for Building Green

HarmonyHomeProjects

Frank Lloyd Wright was a pioneer of holistic, eco-inspired design years ahead of his time. An architect and designer of far-reaching vision, it is not surprising that Frank Lloyd Wright anticipated many of the hallmarks of today’s green movement. The desire to work and live with nature to create livable homes and cities is an ongoing theme of American architecture and planning.

In this blog we explore Wright’s lessons for building greener homes: on how climate, sustainability, sunlight, modern technology, local materials, and passive environmental controls can become the inspiration for excellent design.

HarmonyHomeProjects

The essence of of eco design is efficiency, both in terms of energy and use of resources. The most elegant solutions arise when all the elements of design and construction are properly integrated: in eco design it is how everything works together that really matters. In one sense, eco design is a way of going back to first principles of building. In these styles-conscious times, it is easy to become obsessed with the latest trend and forget that the purpose of a house is to provide shelter.
