MKPhoto-7052-EditIt's been a few years since we've photographed projects for the annual City of Vancouver Heritage Awards, but this year we photographed at least two projects that were submitted, and we're pleased to be able to congratulate a couple of our clients on their Heritage Awards wins.

Congratulations to Robert Lemon Architect, Fast + Epp Structural Engineers, Murray Wystrach Construction, and homeowner Janet Campbell for their work on the McLean House, a.k.a. the Campbell Residence, which earned them an Award of Honour. This house was also featured in the March/April issue of Homes and Living Vancouver, and is a marvellous example of how to restore heritage elements and combine them with a modern addition, creating a set of simultaneously cozy and airy spaces in a large home. We're looking forward to hearing what Janet does with the turret; the home was open this past weekend as part of the Vancouver Heritage Foundation's annual Heritage House Tour, and she had a piece of paper posted in the turret with at least two suggestions. Further demonstration that a good house is never really done!

Also, a most welcome surprise: Bruce Carscadden's Burns Block Micro-Lofts project, which we photographed a good while back, also earned them an Award of Honour. We feature this project on our website--if you haven't seen the media coverage of this sometimes controversial project (or even if you have), go check it out.
