Expanding on a cabin from the '80s, the Drifter Way House transforms the vintage structure into an industrial Whistler retreat. The new residence now offers a rentable three-bedroom suite, an additional two bedroom building, and a three-bedroom main house. Tied together with a standing seam metal facade, the original construction and the extension present a contemporary warehouse appearance. Internally, white walls act as a gallery to display the owner's personal art collection while blackened beams reiterate the exterior's industrial aesthetic. Taking advantage of the home's hillside plot, floor to ceiling glazing offers extensive views of the surrounding Blackcomb mountain.
