Travelling along the Pacific North West coastline from LA to Vancouver, Coast Modern showcases the pioneers of West Coast Modernist Architecture, and the homes that have become their legacies. Stepping inside the most inspired dwellings, we feel how the light and space of a classic Modernist home can work in collaboration with the natural environment. This relaxing journey will take you across three generations of modern domestic design, all finding beauty in their own times, and all leading back to the basics of true living: a sense of place, light, and a deep connection to the earth. Featuring interviews with James Steele, Barbara Lamprecht, Dion Neutra, Douglas Coupland, and legendary photographer Julius Shulman.

The film will be available for 48 hours from when you start the stream. Please note streaming is only possible from inside Canada. Need assistance? Visit our FAQ page or email us at
