Private Residence – Duplex

We were given the opportunity to re-think the spatial plan and the exterior aesthetic of this very nondescript duplex in East Vancouver.

The new floor plan gives each unit the opportunity to have a 1050sf full lower level rental, or a separated in-law/ family unit, while keeping the 1250 sf upper floor a very functional three bedroom dwelling. We have arranged the spaces to create a long term and flexible dwelling structure to sustain the growth of a typical young professional family.The exterior cladding is approachable, durable and eye-catching. Without changing the structure, we explored a stucco and wood siding combination which has been much overused. However we used this combination with greater design scrutiny and rationale than typically done producing an updated, pleasing aesthetic to this big box home.
