Room We Love: Basement With a View

Architect D’Arcy Jones lets in the light with this striking modern space.

The Look: Fresh Perspective

The Designer: D’Arcy Jones, principal of D’Arcy Jones Architects in Vancouver

Who says a basement can’t feature great views too? Certainly not architect D’Arcy Jones, who let the light into this Vancouver home’s subterranean space by steeply sloping a rocky bank down from ground level, filling the resulting patch of land with lush greenery and then putting it all on full display through oversized, Douglas fir-framed basement windows. “The dark frame draws your eyes to the light,” says Jones. “It faces north and glows green all year round.”
