Custom Contemporary House - Cambie District, Vancouver, BC

Architrix
This Architrix home maximizes every possible square inch of buildable area on this standard sized Vancouver lot. This corner lot presents the challenge of designing two prominent building facades while maintaining a controlled budget. The massing of the house with its offset roof pitches is a tribute to the highly popular massing developed in the early 50′s through to the 80′s as seen with the proliferation of the ‘Vancouver Special’. This roof form was developed and gained mass appeal from immigrant settlers due to its low cost of construction and its structural ability to create wide open spaces beneath. As achieved with our design, the space that is created within this form are open and airy all within a relatively simple structure. By exaggerating the roof pitches and creating movement in the building facade we created a modernized Vancouver Special. #architecture #architrix #BC #British_Columbia #custom_home_design #custom_home_plans #design #dwelling #green_building #house #housing #laneway_design #laneway_house_design #residential #studio #sustainable #traditional #Vancouver
