Maybe when you close your eyes and envision ideas for your dream home, all that comes to mind is that dusty vision board in your basement or some tumbleweeds blowing in the wind. Maybe you’re dying to see what it’s actually like to be inside an airtight “Passive House” IRL (you can breathe, don’t worry). Or maybe you just like looking inside other people’s houses and pretending you’re in an episode of The Real Housewives of Locarno Beach. Either way, the 2019 Vancouver Modern Home Tour is what you should be doing next weekend.
You can visit the homes in any order of your choosing. Just print off your map the day before and make your own itinerary. Not only will you be inspired to make your new home as aesthetically pleasing and energy friendly as possible, but you’ll also get the chance to ask the attending architects and designers all of your burning design questions.
A brand-new modern mansion overlooking Locarno Beach, designed by Frits de Vries Architect, built by Skynet Developers, and currently listed for $12.8 million.
A new “forever” home for a north shore family in the Capilano Highlands designed by Shelter Residential Design.
The brand new “Third Chapter House”, designed and built by One Seed Architecture and Interiors, located in Lower Lonsdale.
A second Lower Lonsdale project, the MODCUBE laneway designed by Synthesis Design Inc.; staging courtesy of Urban Presentations.
A second laneway home that embraces luxury, located in East Vancouver, designed by Madeleine Design Group and built by Rain City Renos.
A complete renovation by Architecture Building Culture of a 1971 Barclay McLeod home, located out in Eagle Harbour.
A new modern home in Riley Park, designed by Lanefab Design/Build, that has been certified as a ‘Passive House.’
