House on the Sunshine Coast

Haven't posted in a while. Here's the latest house I recently finished at Halfmoon Bay, BC:

And, by popular request, here's the kitchen, but it's not a very revealing shot:

Thank you! What is the countertop on the island made from?

The isle countertop is one piece of 1 1/4" thick dark grey slate, which has a satin honed finish. It rests on a raw steel beam/leg as it cantilevers away from the cabinets. The rest of the counters are stainless steel with integral ss sink, on Baltic ply, which is visible on the edge.

It's so beautiful! The windows! The deck with the chairs! and is that a pool at the end of the deck?

It's a pool with an 'infinity edge', which means the water flows over the end like a waterfall and it has the effect of bringing the ocean closer.

The island has a floating affect since it doesn't sit flush with the floor. That is very appealing. Please tell us what is the blue/grey exterior wall at the end of the house? Thank you.

infinity pools are miraculous.

and i should of course have said 'fenestration' instead of windows.

The grey surface is a high density concrete board from Germany. It is like a sheet of perfect concrete 1/2" thick. I actually prefer it to concrete, which was too difficult to do because of the inability to form on the rock without spoiling the natural granite with drill holes.
