This project is a low-cost renovation to an existing Vancouver Special for The Hawthorne Charitable Foundation (HCF). HCF is dedicated to providing affordable housing to the Grandview Woodlands community.
The modifications include extensive site work including underpinning the existing house, replacing a deteriorated retaining wall, landscaping, a building addition, new doors and windows and modest interior up grades.
The house provides transitional housing for refugee claimants typically originating from southern climates. Functioning as a portal to a new land, the house will sport a vibrant painted exterior reminiscent of the sub tropics.
Completion Fall 2009.
