here is the realtor’s take on one of these modern homes : (check out the listing here and pixilink tour here)
modern living at its finest in desirable douglas park! open layout with 10 ft ceiling on main, tons of natural light from oversized windows and glass panelled interior doors, custom millwork featuring whitewashed maple and cherry, imported Italian tiles, premium kitchen appliances including double drawer dishwasher. three bedrooms above, mountain view from master. basement legal suite with option as 1 or 2 bedrooms. downtown, trendy main st, queen elizabeth park, granville island, you’ll be in the middle of it all from this stunning new home.
look forward to another post with professional photos of both houses and a more architectural point of view of this project.
I get it. flat roof,boxy design equals modern. Throw in nice finishes, high end appliances, and voila!
The new Vancouver Special ..or “Mcmodern”.
your comment implies that there are thousands of houses like this in vancouver, yet there is nothing ‘vancouver special’ or cookie cutter about these homes.
if these type of homes were truly the norm; us, modernists wouldn’t have to make a fuss about what we believe in.
west coast modernism isn’t a style, it is a way of life. please watch https://www.knowledge.ca/program/coast-modern to understand.
Agree David. Great site, we especially appreciate your candid comments regarding what you think doesn’t work with some designs. We are currently building an Evoke designed house in Vancouver and we find the resources in your blog very helpful and inspiring.
