The Vancouver Special She Moved Into and Renovated
Darren Barefoot points to two articles on Vancouver Specials (I link to some photos I took a few weeks ago): one from The Georgia Straight and another from Canadian Architect. Both articles rely heavily on quotes from Stephanie Robb, a Vancouver designer. Searching for "stephanie robb" vancouver comes up with references to SweaterLodge, evidently “a multi-media exhibition that provides a portrait of Vancouver, where the veneration of nature and the density of urban culture often overlap in surprising and meaningful ways.” The website for her design studio, Pechet and Robb, has information and photos of the Lakewood Residence, the Vancouver Special she moved into and renovated. The skylight in the washroom is beautiful.
