First Shaughnessy Arts & Craft


1400 Angus Drive, Vancouver




Architecture, Landscape


The Reifel Residence features heavy timer detailing, elaborate brick chimneys, and native materials like wood and stucco. The bay window, exposed timber, and a steeply pitched gabled roof give this heritage renovation and complementary additions in First Shaughnessy a distinguished and permanent look along one of Vancouver’s most prominent streetscapes.

The two-entry driveway with herringbone pavers of this Shaughnessy estate leads through a large antechamber garden, which was designed to elevate the presence of the heritage building. It showcases an inground water feature with three fountains, custom granite coping, a flowing greensward accentuated by colourful and textured plantings, and mature red cedar trees.
