About the
East vancouver special project

In a city where space is at a premium, this 1970 Vancouver Special Home Renovation was a smart investment that increased the value of this property while creating a functional and stylish living space. Having found the right design team with a commitment to quality and sustainability, this Vancouver Special renovation project transformed this tired old home into a stunning masterpiece that is now the envy of the neighbourhood.

Vancouver Specials are a common sight in the city’s residential neighbourhoods. These boxy, two-story homes were built in the 1960s and 1970s and many are in need of some love and rejuvenation. Vancouver Special renovation projects offer the perfect opportunity to transform these outdated homes into modern and stylish living spaces.

With a Vancouver Special renovation, these homeowners were able to add new life to their home by updating the exterior facade, opening up the floor plan, and creating a brighter and more welcoming atmosphere. From custom cabinetry to energy-efficient windows, there were countless ways to revitalize this Vancouver Special and make it the perfect place to call home.

This Vancouver Special renovation project was more than just a home improvement; it was an opportunity to breathe new life into a piece of Vancouver’s architectural history. By preserving the essence of the original design while incorporating contemporary features and finishes, these homeowners created a home that is both timeless and modern.
