For the salmon:

1 teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
1 lb (4 pieces) Wild Caught Salmon filet, skin-on (Avoid Farm Raised Salmon!!!)
Coconut Oil for cooking

Combine all the salsa ingredients in a bowl, season to taste with salt and pepper and refrigerate salsa until ready to serve. Makes 1 cup. In a small bowl, add the paprika, cayenne, thyme and oregano and salt and mix to blend. Put the mixture on a plate or other flat surface and coat the salmon filets. Heat a large heavy-bottomed pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat, add a decent amount coconut oil to pan. When very hot add the salmon, flesh side down and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Use a spatula to carefully turn the salmon, then cook an additional 5 to 6 minutes.

About the Crib

A neglected inner city bungalow is completely transformed into an urban oasis, in Southland Vancouver, British Columbia,  through the discovery of a hidden creek.

Fresh Water: The Southlands Residence nestles into a mature, heavily vegetated corner site in Vancouver’s historical Dunbar-Southlands neighborhood. A year-round fresh water stream divides the irregularly shaped site and the lush basin resulting from long-standing environmental forces sets the stage for this dramatic residence.

New Ground: The house is designed around the structural grid established by an earlier residence. While remnants of original footings and columns remain, the Southlands Residence reinterprets the competing notions of privacy and exposure facing the well-traveled location. This is done in part through the use of concrete walls in the landscape, meticulous interior millwork objects, and substantial feature skylights.

Great Wide Open Access…. to the private outdoor environment is provided on the north side of the house through an integrated garden storage and potting area. A concrete path crosses over the slow moving water and threads south under the sculpted wooden belly of the house. Where previously the landscape had bounded interior volumes, the building skin now frames entry into the luscious outdoor realm.

Indoor/ Outdoor…. Divide A perimeter network of decks covers outdoor areas and blurs the line between interior and exterior. Surrounding bamboo, rhododendrons, and Japanese maples become as much a part of the interior living areas as the client’s carefully selected pieces of furniture.
