Shaw House Vancouver | By Patkau Architects

Amazing home in Vancouver, featuring above ground pool, designed by local firm Patkau Architects. The Shaw House won several design awards in the years immediately after construction was completed, including the prestigious National Honor Award in 2005 from the American Institute of Architects. The reason it drew such attention is due to the fact that the designated site for the Shaw House unkindly dictated that this single occupant residence could not be greater than 8 meters wide.
