Mcleod Bovell is a Canadian architectural firm known for designing buildings that fit gracefully into the landscape around Vancouver, where steep slopes and uneven terrain quite often constitute a real design challenge. Container House is an audacious interpenetration of sharp shapes punctuated by the expressive energy of the color red.

The living room enjoys a magnificent view of the bay on one side and the fir-covered hills on the other. To furnish it, Mcleod Bovell chose a generous arrangement of the Beauty sofa, featuring a sleek metal base and soft cushions upholstered in gray fabric.
