The Armada House is a very special place. It was designed by the Canadian studio named KB design and was built in 2007 by a company called Abstract Developments.
This very modern type of post and beam residence is 5,299 square feet in diameter and is located at the Ten Mile Point / Wedgewood Estates neighborhood near Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
Armada is a house that appears to have been “sculpted” on the spot. It has a footprint that is both very balanced and appears to be carved right into the land. Its very abstract design actually gives it the impression of being a presence in its own right.
The modern lines use wood, steel, stone and glass to create a perfect balance that speaks for itself. It also has very bespoke mill work as well as cherry constructions that accentuate any space that is energy efficient in its description. It also has underfloor heating.
It has very private and terraced decks with amazing ocean views that are scenic and relaxing
It has a five foot VG front door that rotates and opens to a 24 foot high atrium that has a curved roof and cascading lights. There are curved steps that are on the port side that open to a wonderful living space covered with floor to ceiling glass.
There is a great kitchen that is environmentally friendly in every way and is made of bamboo and brushed granite. There is a 6 inch thick terrazzo eat bar that opens onto the dining and living areas. There is also a double-sided gas fireplace and a cherry wall that opens to an atrium beyond.
The master suite contains a beautiful bed that is curved and offers great views of the ocean. There is an en suite bathroom with his and hers vanities, a Japanese bathtub, and a slate shower / steam room that is very spacious in appearance. There is another walk-in closet with more built-in cherries and laundry facilities.
Armada is a house that defines the importance of modern design, composition, overall style and a balanced flow of indoor and outdoor spaces. All of these things make it the ideal home for living, entertaining, and presenting unique curves / angles that catch and delight the eye on their own.
