here is the write-up by the selling realtor, lionel lorence:

originally designed by seminal modernist vancouver firm thompson berwick & pratt, & perfectly restored to the highest modern standards by d’arcy jones; winner of the inaugural arthur erickson award for architecture. a perfect marriage of architectural design & function creating a seamless connection between both interior & exterior space that brings each room to life. completely rebuilt in 2007 featuring integrated masonry, custom walnut millwork throughout, seven-layer solid apple plywood kitchen, floor to ceiling glass, cork, oak, organic wool carpet & slate flagstone floors wrapped in lush landscaping rich with japanese maples, rhododendrons, ferns & other native west coast flora. featured in western living, canadian architect, vancouver’s modern house tour, & the film coast modern. an outstanding example of quintessential modern architecture.
