There is an island named Quadra at British Columbia, famous for its pristine nature and breathtaking landscapes. Professionals of Patkau Architects studio have created the Tula House there. It is literally digged into the subsurface rock and is risen above the water of one of the hundreds of Pacific Ocean`s gats on the Canadian coast. The house`s shape looks quite modern on the back of the softwood forest, however, the colour of the facade does not outlook the building on the back of the trees. It was a big challenge for the architects to create modern private house with all up-to-date improvements and not to cause any damage to the nature at the time, as well as not to violate the landscape. The interior is made in minimalism style and helps to focus attention on the view outside the windows, which are created of wired safety glass and have floor-to-ceiling height.
