Here’s a whole house remodel by KOArchitecture, the West Vancouver Residence in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Built in 1958 and originally designed by noted Pacific Northwest architect Roland Terry, this West Vancouver house no longer met the needs of contemporary living. Designed around a central courtyard, the L-shaped residence is divided into a private wing housing bedrooms and a public-oriented section holding the kitchen, dining and living areas. Purchased by a couple who enjoy entertaining, the house held great appeal—tall ceilings, exposed natural fir tree columns, and expansive glazing. The solution was a multi-phase remodel that focused on consolidating the kitchen, dining and living areas, enhancing the home’s connections to nature, and updating the design to clarify Terry’s original concept while enhancing day-to-day living.
