Take a peek inside some of our favourite building features:

  • The bedrooms downstairs are designed for comfort and relaxation, while the upstairs kitchen, living and south-facing patio allows for sunlight-filled entertainment.
  • The vaulted, 12 foot high ceilings and the 360-degree custom shelving for beautiful CD storage.
  • Hidden drawers and convertible closets make for hassle-free storage.
  • The mechanical room is suspended horizontally and accessible from the deck.
  • It features an eco-friendly and cost-effective living green roof.

Most of all, a beautiful space is best when it provides an abundance of joy!

Multigenerational Design Build houses are the future of Vancouver’s residential growth. Hidden density can be accomplished without demolition, or losing the character of our neighbourhoods.

Mad for Artisan Tiles

  • By novelladmin

Three words: Unique, Crafty, and Imaginative.

Who knew tiles could be explored to such great lengths? These gem pieces are being redefined as much more than your clinical background and are now introduced into the world of design and architecture as an art form. Pulling from the Moroccan culture, these tile geniuses fully embody the true artisanal ways- from fair labour and hard work to hand crafted perfection!
