2300 West 6th Avenue, Vancouver
For this Kitsilano residence a strong landscape definition at the front property line and in the back lane was achieved through an evergreen dark yew hedge, enveloping the pedestrian and driveway gate. The metal gates with solid panels match the arched metal arbor, picking up on architectural detail on the house.
Strict retention and guidelines did not interfere with a doubling of the size of this Kitsilano bungalow. The great couple, their three children, grandmother and two cars are comfortably nested into a tight vibrant neighbourhood.
