Inspired by the neighboring fir, spruce, and cedars, the Sooke House complements the rugged scenery with an organic design. The dwelling sits on a rocky outcropping overlooking the ocean. Clad in black metal and timber, it takes on an abstract form to keep the natural terrain intact. Internally, a single concrete column emerges from the floor, resembling the surrounding tree trucks while wooden slats on the ceiling recreate the conifer branches of the forest canopy. To further emphasize the immersive experience, large glazed panels in each room capture unique views of the forest, mountains, and sea.
