Clean lines and big windows: Elements that make nearly anyone dreaming of designing their new home get stars in their eyes. We pulled together four examples of beautiful Vancouver modern house design to inspire your next renovation or custom home design.
7062 Osler St., Vancouver
A textbook example of a West Coast modern home in Vancouver, this home in a quiet area of Marpole features oversized vertical windows, a flat roof and clean lines inside and out.
See more images and information on the house on the Modern Vancouver Houses blog.
Yarmish Dr., Richmond
Draft On Site’s team of modern home designers created the layout design for this home located in Richmond. The home was recently renovated inside and out. The interior space planning created an open concept design that is bright and efficient.
UBC Endowment Lands, Vancouver
The block-like structure of this home on the UBC Endowment Lands, next to Pacific Spirit Park, makes it more contemporary than modern. The builders, Natural Balance Home Builders, won two and were a finalist for three other awards for the construction of the home.
The big windows make the most of the spectacular views. See photos of the interior here.
E 8th Ave. laneway house, Vancouver
Minimalist, with fresh colours and practical materials make this East Vancouver laneway home a perfect example of Vancouver modern house design. The big, bright windows and open-concept layout, which are typical of modern design, help make the small space look and feel large.
