We get a sneak peek into featured homes on the Vancouver Modern Home Tour coming September 19.
Design addicts like us never pass up the chance to tour people’s beautiful modern homes. And this year, for the third annual Vancouver Modern Home Tour, we get to see everything from a North Vancouver “Cliffhanger Residence” with a gravity-defying footprint, to a new build in UBC’s endowment lands.
One Seed Architecture + Interiors recently gutted this 1,000-square-foot condo in Vancouver’s West End. One Seed wanted to makeover the home in the spirit of a New York City loft and created an open floor plan where spaces are defined by colour, lighting and design accents in lieu of walls and doors.
Lanefab Design/Build shows off its unique laneway house on a lot large enough to allow for the small home to be designed with two separate wings: a living/dining space with a guest bedroom, and a master suite separated by a small pocket garden.
LCI Design overhauled a 1960s Lewis Post and Beam home in West Vancouver, keeping as much of the original mid-century charm as possible in its modern update. A major part of the renovation was transforming the dirt-floor basement into an additional living area for a young family.
Located in the ‘Little Australia’ neighbourhood of UBC endowment lands in Vancouver, Frits de Vries Architect and Natural Balance Home Builders created this new house with its forest setting of the nearby Pacific Spirit Park in mind.
One of the most amazing things about this home is surely its footprint. Designed by Kevin Vallely, the home sits on the steep south-facing slopes in North Vancouver’s Indian Arm with a footprint of 25 feet in width and 100 feet in length, that drops nearly 60 feet over its 100 feet in length. Three levels offer a simple open plan with no space left unused.
