CIP Building System
Monolith Systems


This industrial-inspired, high-performance build boasts some of the most diverse concrete finishes we’ve seen–one entire exterior panel features a life-size image of a Garry oak tree, taken by the homeowners and by using concrete graphic art she is permanently embedded into the concrete. The flooring is polished concrete, with embedded strips of ornate wood beneath the master and guest beds. Mixed media and textured walls are found throughout the building, and built-in concrete features such as the bathtub and cozy seating areas make the home feel warm and inviting.
