The Vanglo House WINS ‘Innovation Award’ @ COV 2016 Urban Design Awards

Posted by: Martina @ 2:25 pm on May 11, 2016


At the City of Vancouver 2016 Urban Design Awards The Vanglo House was recognized for its provocative response to constraints, for its sculptural and refreshing presence and for providing creative urban living space.

“The Vanglo House is a provocative response within the context of prescriptive and constraining site and bylaw conditions. Its sculptural form provides a refreshing sense of place and contributes positively to the streetscape. The intentional volumetric design of this project resonates as an imaginative architectural statement and a compelling discussion piece while providing creative urban living space.” (Jury, City of Vancouver Urban Design Awards 2016 – Innovation Category)
