Contemporary Design & Functionality Silversea Residence, Vancouver

Vancouver-based design studio Robert Bailey has designed the interior of Silversea Residence project. The contemporary property overlooks False Creek in Vancouver, Canada.

According to the designers: “This waterfront suite needed to blend contemporary design with the functionality of a family-friendly home.

“The suite was demolished back to steel studs and concrete.  The three bedroom  three bath residence has three decks, and is all on one level. It needed to incorporate the needs of the client’s toddler, yet be flexible enough to serve adult requirements and entertaining.

When renovating this contemporary Vancouver apartment, one of our objectives was to give a greater sense of space to the rooms.  Opening up the spaces so there would be great flow.  One example is the  conventional master bath/bedroom layout was redesigned for a more open feel. Removing partitions that separated these spaces expanded how each space was seen and used. Only the shower and toilet are more private, separated by a sliding glass panel. With elements such as a custom white-lacquer vanity with marble countertop, the bathroom is designed for a lightness and effortless elegance, allowing it to connect seamlessly to the bedroom.

“Outside, this contemporary Vancouver property decks were clad in wood similar in colour to the interior. Inside the rooms are modern, with a calmness and a ease that is inviting and inspiring. The client is an art dealer, so it was critical that we reflected her modernist tastes in our designs. The natural walnut flooring was the ideal, warm complement to the white marble on the walls and counters.

“The design of this luxury Vancouver property is feminine and light, but with a welcoming feel that is truly a reflection of the client.”
