Garret Cord Werner have designed a contemporary home near Vancouver, Canada. Project description The architecture & interiors of this new home design by Garret Cord Werner represents a high quality of new construction on a modest budget. Over 20 ft. high concrete walls frame the dramatic entry into the home that features a floating open riser staircase. The home was designed to maximize light & to make one feel as much a part of the forest surrounding the home as possible.
