The Vancouver designer creates a design for a house that resembles a stingray


The Vancouver designer has created a supernatural house for the British Columbia coast. By now, this is only a project, and there is no information yet on how much Stingray House will cost, but judging by the size of this spectacular pool, it is safe to say that the price will be multimillion dollar. In turn, the designer estimates the realization of the futuristic house at 3-4 million dollars. The Vancouver-based designer uses 3D rendering in his designs to open the eyes of Canadians to the possibilities of expressive architecture.

Amey Kandalgaonkar moved to Canada a little over a year ago. Born in India, he received his master’s degree in architectural design in the United Kingdom, and is now living in Vancouver. Inspired by Vancouver’s existing Brutalist architecture like the MacMillan Bloedel Building on West Georgia, Kandalgaonkar created a rendering of what he titled the ‘Stingray house’.

The Stingray house’s design is a subtle nod to the sea creature, made of concrete and with a glass swimming pool. The house is facing the ocean, perched on the natural rock formations so familiar to the coast of British Columbia.

Amey recognizes the exposed blocks of concrete that is one of the main tenets of Brutalist architecture aren’t as appreciated as they once were in the 70s and 80s but is saddened they are disappearing as they are definitely has its own unique style.

“Today actually concrete structures are not that popular these days, and there are fewer and fewer of the, because people often find them ugly,” he said. “Now they are getting replaced by a variety of other architectural solutions day by day and I just feel like it is a big loss of culture for Vancouver.”

The designer went on to mention that around the world there is a movement to preserve Brutalist architecture but at the same time knows the style needs to be advanced.

“I’ve tried to take some inspiration from the Brutalist architecture but also I think it needs to be presented in a new form, in a new geometry,” he said.

For those who might not be used to such outlandish designs in their architecture, Amey hopes people might open their minds to the idea that architecture is an art, a form of expression.

“I think people tend to look at architecture or a house as a box in which they live, but you need to look at it more broadly,” he said.

The designer added that Vancouver House, a neo-futuristic skyscraper on Howe Street, pioneered the idea of ​​how expressive architecture could look like.

Vancouver House was designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels. It is a 59-storey skyscraper (150 meters) of original neo-futuristic architecture (a triangular building at the base turns into a quadrangular as it rises) with the most modern equipment. The complex includes 407 high-tech residential apartments.
