Eye-rolling at old trends is almost as fun as celebrating new ones. That was certainly the case with this Kitsilano mixed-use home that was called chic and grand in a 1985 issue and then possibly a little too perfect and certainly a little too colourful in 2001. It was designed by Architecton, the firm of Kanau Uyeyama, who crafted the space for both his home and his office. In the 2001 issue, the home was used as a prime example of postmodern shame. Writer Trevor Boddy claimed no architect will ever admit to using postmodernist forms. Brutal.
