RUF Project (Rural Urban Fantasy Project) recently completed this swoon-worthy home on Saltspring Island, BC. Inspired by West Coast mid-century modernists – especially Arthur Erickson – the house is a contemporary take on the longhouse that pushes the concept of post and beam to its limits.
LightForm was ecstatic to work with RUF whose client’s design brief of rustic Canadian cabin meets modern villa, allowed them relatively free rein.
