MOUNTAIN RETREAT

Challenge: Our clients wanted to modernize the look of their 1997 home, and update all electrical and plumbing infrastructure. Structural issues were apparent at the onset of the project with missing bearing points and beams that should have been incorporated into the original build.

Solution: The work started with a complete strip out of the interior. Existing finishes, appliances, kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, electrical, plumbing, doors and frames, heating systems, all trim, drywall, insulation and vapour barrier were all removed. This left a bare wood frame shell which required some tricky structural changes to open up the interior necessitating load transfer modifications and additional foundations.

The main stair was widened to create a luxurious ascent to the master bedroom overlooking the golf course. All bathrooms were fully replaced with a new kitchen designed to be open to the dining room and living room. The new interior finishes, and the essential design thereof, came together smoothly with all trades meeting agreed time frames and prices.

We had a great time working with the client throughout the project. Communication was strong during the course of construction which resulted in a renovation that exceeded the client’s criteria and that also met our exacting level of quality.

“Not only did Peak Ventures complete the work on time and on budget, the quality exceeded our expectations, and we have high expectations."

CITY STYLE

This job showcases city living at its finest. The obvious central feature of this home is the fantastic rooftop pool with an acrylic bottom that acts as the dining area hallway ceiling. (Definitely the best skylight we’ve ever seen…)

We reworked the kitchen which now provides an elegant bar area for casual dining. Creating a personal library was another fun aspect of this project. Our goal was achieved - creating a serene sanctuary to take you way from the busy city centre.

We were able to utilize some very unique and custom features thanks to our design/build team. These features included a “floating light” diffuser above the dining room which doubles down on the pool feature to create what appears to be a floating water element over the dining room table. Adding art lighting beneath the acrylic pool provided a great lighting affect that highlights the artwork while not taking away from the extraordinary pool.

OHM HOME

Challenge: We were asked to help bring some life and vibrancy to this slightly- dated home.  Although the home had a beautiful location and large interior spaces, the natural lighting and the view was limited. The potential was immediately identified.

Solution: Using the existing post and beam design, the timbers were white-washed and we added more windows to allow for more natural light. The bathroom in particular enjoyed a luxury makeover, with white-washed wood beams and ceiling, under-counter lighting and a gorgeous chandelier. This award-winning renovation resulted in a magnificent transformation. Working closely with Debbie Evans of Whistler Interior Designs, Peak Ventures was able to create a very sophisticated yet warm and inviting home.

The once-dysfunctional kitchen was totally redesigned to become a comfortable, efficient space that flows naturally into the family room.

By moving the fireplace in the bedroom and lightening the timber beams the cozy ambience is retained but the room is much more spacious and bright. The entire bottom floor was redesigned to focus on entertaining and relaxation.

CONTEMPORARY MOUNTAIN HOME

We worked with a very gifted Architect, Fook Weng Architecture, on this job which combined East Asian themes with Log Chalet. The remodel included a rework of most spaces as well as custom designed and built light fixtures (log lights with wooden wall sconces and receded lighting in the guest suite ceiling).

A very unique “Guest Suite” was placed in private space over the garage which was built to imitate a mountainside. We constructed a beautiful movie room with hifidelity music system and power roller blackout shades to provide prime movie viewing conditions. The exquisite and efficient office featured a commercial grade, super precision library storage system.

TREETOP VIEW

Challenge: Our clients wanted a luxurious, comfortable home, while capitalizing on the spectacular views of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains.

Solution: Working with Anne Boa Interior Design, we built this beautifully-planned post and beam home, featuring soaring vaulted ceilings, glass façades, exotic woods, and unique stonework that naturally integrate the enclosed space into the beauty of the outdoor landscape. Upon arrival, you’re welcomed through an amazing, hand-carved yellow cedar front door, accented with a custom-made stained glass window.  The Douglas fir roof beams are finely finished and the Custom European windows beautifully frame the outstanding view. Gorgeous hardwood floors, clean-lined classic kitchen cabinetry, and spa-like bathrooms, add to make this home both functional and attractive.

There is a climate-controlled bespoke wine cellar, a media room and an elevator for easy-accessibility.

Anne Boa’s design combined the individual and unique wishes of our clients into a beautiful modern home – just the way they wanted it.

“The unique trademarks of our home and the workmanship involved in production of these features, are only surpassed by the structural integrity and attention to detail provided by Peak Ventures. From the tradesman’s professionalism to the consistent cleanliness, we found our work site to be a pleasant and safe place. We are pleased with the quality of construction and would not hesitate to recommend our friends at Peak Ventures”

OUTDOOR LIVING
 
This was a complete remodel of the house, including modifying roof lines and adding some square footage and outdoor space. We started by bringing the outdoors into the dining room with a wall of glass that opens onto [our favourite] outdoor living space. The patio featured a barbecuing area, as well as a fire place and large seating area. Followed by a master bedroom and ensuite addition, we also reconfigured the lower floor to include a great multipurpose space for family time with a games room.

CEDAR RIDGE

Challenge:  Our client planned to spend more time in this home and wanted to increase its livability. The project was complicated by the strata-specified deadline for exterior work, the logistics of working in an occupied strata complex, and the need to minimize the impact on surrounding neighbours.

Solution:  By reducing the deck space, removing the hot tub, and moving out the dining room wall, we were able to add important livable space inside. Our homeowners were thrilled to have a larger kitchen. The additional 500 square feet of living space integrated seamlessly into the existing architecture.

This award-winning home features reclaimed fir flooring (from the Stanley Park storm), and wood-cased sliding doors in the dining room, that allow full access to the outdoor balcony with its exquisite views.

Green building products and processes were used extensively throughout the renovation, which resulted in a modern, highly-efficient, and beautiful home.

COZY CABIN

Challenge: The main emphasis of this renovation was to create a home design that maximized living space yet retained the comfort and natural feel of the space.

Solution: We focused on updating the finishing, casing out the windows in beautiful wood that complemented new beams and cabinetry. The loft was opened up with the incorporation of custom steel railings.

The transformation of this home was extensive to say the least. The details that Peak Ventures, Anne Boa Design and the client put into this project leave nothing to the imagination. The resulting finished project is quite simply stunning. Using Cherry wood, local cabinet artisan Jim Mackie’s custom design has not only opened up the kitchen but made it a rich and inviting useable space.  A deck was added and the room above the kitchen was opened up to give a natural open flow. Energy-efficient windows allow for plenty of natural light. The merging of the architecture and landscape are evident in this beautiful transformation.

ARCHIBALD

Challenge: We were asked to update a modest, out-dated cabin into a modern comfortable home where our clients could gather with family and friends. Although they wanted to retain the charm and character of the old home, they knew they needed to do some extensive renovation.

Solution: We designed an envelope that capitalized on the original architectural lines. By reconfiguring and redesigning the home, not only is the interior completely transformed, but now there’s the addition of a remarkable outdoor living space. The new kitchen is a dream to work in.

With great consideration for the original feel, we were able to change the living space into an attractive inviting space where they could gather. Architecturally-interesting wrap-around decks spill out off the back of the home adding plenty of entertaining space while enhancing the home’s overall look. Features include a glass-covered Basalt BBQ and an enclosed hot tub with plasma TV and AV system to create the ultimate indoor/outdoor experience.

“Our dream project started with the unique plans and drawings from your firm: from there our chalet became truly a home to be proud of. Everything that we wanted and needed was completed with expertise  and master craftsmanship.”

EMERALD CHARM

Challenge: Our clients wanted to increase livability, while respecting the architectural features and surroundings of their existing home. This included extensive changes to the kitchen and bathrooms, the addition of a bedroom and a modern upgrade to the home’s exterior.

Solution: Our clients are thrilled in their modern, functional and attractive home! With a fully-integrated island, which includes an induction cooktop, chimney-styled hood-fan, plenty of counterspace and accessible storage, this kitchen is now a practical and comfortable place to prepare meals. The new, clear-washed Knotty pine ceiling, compliments the brightness of the kitchen, while containing the necessary ductwork. Hidden pot lights, LED under-counter, and glass-cabinet lighting create a clean and modern look. An existing cedar post was encased within the new island and became an attractive focal point.

Combining the existing powder room and front closet, created a full-bathroom, complete with a clever angled-shower.  A new bedroom and full bathroom with shower and tub were accommodated in the addition.

Upgrades to the home’s electrical system support today’s energy-efficient appliances and innovative high-end fixtures. These, along with features such as radiant-heat floors, frameless shower doors and 18” rain shower heads, combine to bring the ‘wow factor’ to this beautiful resort home.

The final touch was the installation of cladding that seamlessly blends the new portions with the existing exterior siding.

PINNACLE RIDGE

Challenge – Pinnacle Ridge was a complete fire rebuild of a 4-plex, with the Peak Ventures team also finishing two of the four units’ interiors.

Solution: This renovation and restoration project met Built Green Gold Standard. Some of the featured upgrades are new fibreglass energy efficient windows and an upgrade to partially utilize sprayed-in-place foam insulation. These upgrades provided major improvement to the envelope air-tightness and thermal efficiency of the building.

In conjunction with Architect Dennis Maguire’s Interior Design, the home’s interior was completed showcasing beautiful products and finishing throughout.

KHYBER LANE

Challenge: Our clients wanted to maximize the potential of this dramatically-placed home site while incorporating modern, energy-saving materials.

Solution: Don Stuart Architecture designed the perfect custom home that took full advantage of the parameters of this Spring Creek lot, while connecting beautifully with the dramatic north, west, and southern views.

The home was built using customized Energreen Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), and is one of the most energy efficient homes in the valley. The home also features a Heat Recovery Ventilation system, and has very high insulative properties and sound qualities.

Khyber Lane is modern and extremely energy-efficient, but it is also a comfortable and beautiful place to live. Rich warm-toned wood beams and mouldings accent the open living spaces, while the natural slate flooring complements the beauty of the hardwood throughout. The luxury of the ensuite bathroom is the perfect setting for a relaxing soak after a day on the slopes.

Our clients are extremely pleased with their beautiful mountain custom home.

“Our experience was that the Peak Ventures staff was knowledgeable and reliable throughout the project. Our home was built with quality materials and with attention to detail. We would gladly recommend them to others."
