Developed by Mcfarlane Biggar Architects + Designers, Gambier Island House is an impressive modern residence dramatically integrated in a rocky landscape on Gambier Island, near Vancouver, Canada. The project was especially envisioned as a weekend retreat for a couple and their two children. Independent sources for heat and electricity had to be carefully examined and implemented, with access to the new house only being possible via water. Extensive use of glass maximizes the spectacular views, without compromises regarding privacy.

Gambier Island House showcases a minimalist contemporary design, with a simple genometry: “Two stacked boxes are perched on the rocky cliff, clad in wood, cement board, and glass to fend off the elements. Three-bedrooms and two bathrooms are complemented by an open-plan kitchen, dining + living area with simple lines to frame the amazing views to sea and mountains beyond, while expansive roof decks create a seamless connection with the spectacular setting”. The hybrid structure is mainly built out of wood with some steel and minimal concrete, in order to minimize its effects on the site. How would you personally comment on the overall design of this weekend retreat?

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
