Those who are evaluating the possibility of renewing an old building, modernizing or recycling , and achieve a notable change in the next pictures will find a good example of this. We will see a house style traditional, completely transformed by the Canadian study ‘Iconstrux Architecture’. Chris Doray and Arno Matis of Vancouver, provide a complete redesign for the house “Vancouver Special” in the ’60s, located in the Dunbar neighborhood of Vancouver, Canada. The term “Vancouver Special” , or in Spanish “Vancouver Special” refers to a style and architecture of the houses that were built roughly between 1965 and 1985 in Vancouver. These houses were relatively inexpensive and built quickly and easily. This condition made them popular among home builders seeking to meet the demand for new housing in a rapidly growing city. For this reason many of the houses were built, becoming a common sight in the neighborhood, and received the nickname “Vancouver Special”. Despite the popularity of this style of homes, many city residents are unhappy with its appearance, and are related to affordable housing. This is one of the reasons why these houses, which have between 20-40 years old , are currently being demolished, or renovated. The images we see, is one of the fortunate houses litter the “Vancouver Special” 60’s, which followed a renovation project , and a complete contemporary update. The result is visible, in fact it seems a totally new modern house. For example, we can see how the facade that had two small windows and a balcony, became an almost entirely glass front, while the interior denotes the actual touch of decoration.
