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
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.
