West Coast Style Architecture

True to the character of Ucluelet, the community of OCEANWEST's custom-built West Coast style homes blend into the landscape and many of them incorporate green building techniques.

There are a number of custom home builders available in Ucluelet to build your OW home, including Icon Developments, a Gold CARE Award winner recognized by the Canadian Home Builders Association for unique design, function, creative use of space, compatibility with the environment, energy efficiency, effective land use, and cost.

Architectural design elements featured at OCEANWEST include:
  • Characteristics of early cottage communities
  • Natural materials and earthy tones
  • Cape Cod, Craftsman, West Coast Contemporary and West Coast Cottage styling
  • Landscaping and siting that respects and maintains the natural site characteristics
  • An eclectic cottage theme and character throughout the development
