Keith Baker has designed the Armada House, located in Victoria, BC, Canada.
This Canadian house features a combination of wood and concrete, deep over hanging eaves, large glass windows, and a post and beam structure, each features glass windows to take advantage of the most beautiful landscapes, this amazing house is perfect for relaxing and entertaining.
Set among Garry Oaks on a rocky slope, Armada is a perfect convergence of concrete, glass, steel and wood. In 2008 it garnered 10 Gold awards including Project of the Year and Best Custom Home in Canada. Its entry atrium’s grand but welcoming stairs and five-foot wide Douglas fir door establish a sense of volume and scale that defines the residence. Exposed glu-lam fir beams and plenty of windows compliment the open plan kitchen, living, dining space. This facilitates a delicate balance between spaciousness for entertaining and intimacy for daily living.
