ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN AND CHARACTER

THE DESIGN OF VINSON HOUSE COTTAGES IS INSPIRED BY VINSON HOUSE, AND ARCHITECTURAL FEATURES FOUND IN OTHER EARLY WEST VANCOUVER HOUSES AND COTTAGES

architecture-feature

While the exterior appearance of Vinson House and many of its interior features are being conserved, the kitchen and bathrooms are being completely updated to meet today’s lifestyle requirements.

The Garden Suite and cottages incorporate a variety of traditional details to complement Vinson House. These include covered porches with open railings; horizontal, vertical and board and batten siding and shingles; smaller pane windows; steeply sloping roofs with dormers, and coordinated heritage paint colours.

LANDSCAPING

Private and shared outdoor spaces

The lawn area has been kept as large as possible for the shared enjoyment of residents

Careful attention has been given to the design of the extensive landscaped gardens and spacious patios. Each home has its own private and outdoor spaces. Pathways connect the homes to small seating areas and shared gardens. Traditional fixtures including Edwardian-style planters and bird – baths will also be added to accentuate the gardens’ significant heritage.

An edwardian garden

One of the key features is a recreated edwardian garden similar to what might have been found 100 years ago 

The planting exhibits considerable variety, with extensive use of deciduous shrubs and perennials, including rhododendrons, heather, boxwood, shrub roses, hardy fuchsia, yew, chocolate vine, climbing roses and much more.

Trees and flowering shrubs will contribute to the desired level of privacy between each of the homes.

Thoughtful design

The laneway and garden cottages offer state-of-the-art living with spacious rooms on three levels, thoughtfully designed kitchens, luxurious bathrooms, and materials and equipment designed for sustainable and adaptable living

Although similar, the interior images as shown here are intended to be used to illustrate the desired look and feel of what we are striving to create for the interior finishings at the Vinson House Cottages and should not be interpreted as being an exact representation herein.
