Waterfront Homes

Chernoff Thompson Architects had designed many private waterfront homes. Each of these homes is a unique response to the needs of the owner and the site.


Waterfront Home   Secret Cove, BC

This two storey waterfront home has a rugged west coast theme. The home is designed to maximize the view from every room and to provide a variety of outdoor balconies, decks and terraces, all with ocean views.

Waterfront Home   Pender Island, BC

This waterfront cottage on South Pender Island was designed as a french country style home. Construction of the entire house is of concrete filled foam blocks for a very well insulated home.

Waterfront Home   Port Moody, BC

This 279 sm (915 sf) private home on the water in Port Moody is designed for maximum benefit from sun and view, while still providing excellent privacy for both the owners and neighbours.


Waterfront Home   Secret Cove, BC

A craftsman style home on a steep wooded rocky site facing onto Secret Cove. The house overlooks its protected moorage. The high ceiling living/dining/kitchen space cantilevers into the view and features a large "Lodge" type fireplace. The master suite has an exercise area in the ensuite. The home has a loft and guest room for visitors.



Waterfront Home   Secret Cove, BC

This is a private home on a steeply sloping rock faced wtaerfront lot at the entrance to Secret Cove. The house has an open plan with a large kitchen/dining/living room that has extensive glazing to the south and west sides. The house has a large covered deck on the south, and terraced decks on the west facing water and view.



Waterfront Home   Bowen Island, BC

A large single family home on a prominent waterfront site at Miller Point on Bowen Island. The site setbacks and slope provided a very small difficult buildable area with awkward grade access. The home is of a "seaside" character combining influences from historic Bowen Island homes and New England seaside homes.



Waterfront Home  Penticton, BC

This is a small "retirement" home on an east facing high bluff lakeside lot. With careful placement it was possible to provide lake views in 3 directions; north, east and south. The house has a relaxed easy-care open plan with a large kitchen and deck for easy entertaining of friends and relatives. Upstairs has a master bedroom suite with a large outdoor screened porch. The lower floor has guest bedrooms and a recreation room.
