Centennial 1

Nestled along the Pacific coast, this architectural masterpiece embodies the essence of coastal living. The design maximizes its frontage and offers breathtaking ocean views, while the living spaces wrap around a south-facing courtyard, providing a serene escape.

Renowned Frits de Vries Architect has crafted a gorgeous design, complete with sharp acute mitre windows, providing a unique architectural element to this sophisticated structure. These windows, together with the strategic design, offer spectacular views of Boundary Bay, adding an enriching dimension of natural beauty to the project. Additionally, a thoughtfully designed patio entrance serves as a welcoming touch, enhancing the building’s exterior appeal while maintaining a perfect balance between aesthetic sophistication and functional elegance.

As you step into the main living space, you are greeted with double-fronted doors leading to the courtyard and onto an expansive deck, offering panoramic views of Mount Baker and Centennial Beach. The simplicity of the open-plan layout, combined with the abundance of natural beauty, creates a living space like no other.

As you take in your surroundings, you’ll notice the natural light that floods the ground floor, thanks to the ribbon of sliding glass doors that form the oceanfront elevation and the courtyard perimeter. These expansive glazing systems play an essential role in enhancing the overall ambiance of the space. In addition, the generously sized windows throughout the design allow for ample natural light, reducing the need for artificial lighting during the day.

The design showcases a magnificent display of large curtainwall windows and operable inserts, adding a touch of sophistication to the overall aesthetic. In addition to the unique glazing elements, the custom flashing and panel installations add a unique touch, creating a truly one-of-a-kind project. This combination of sophisticated design and expert craftsmanship makes this project one of Summit’s flagship projects, showcasing the company’s unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional quality.

With its breathtaking views and abundant natural light, this architectural masterpiece is a true gem waiting to be discovered.
