Vanglo selected this abandoned site within Vancouver's Mount Pleasant neighbourhood to design a home that sets the tone for conscientious development.  This award winning home includes green development materials and processes:


  • process of deconstruction of previous dwelling maximises re-use or recycling of materials.

  • incorporating comprehensive envelope details, including triple glazed windows, Blue Skin VP membrane and high insulation values. 

  • designed for multi generational use, the house strives for sustainability through adaptability.  All 3 floors of this single family home and garden suite are engineered to be open plan. This offers the future occupant the choice to reconfigure the floor plan to suit their needs.

  • ENERGY STAR Certified.
