West 11th

This project is located in a quiet neighbourhood in Vancouver.  The lot is on a corner, which the building addresses with a long, punctuated white brick facade.  The wall implies movement and is separated top and bottom by wood siding and corner glazed window units.  The facade will be grounded along its length with a hedge.  The upper brick registers on the front facade as a vertical edge, separated from the stained wood siding by a floor to ceiling window.  The lower brick wall wraps the corner and terminates at the entry.  

Completed 2016
