Image Post: Gould Residence by Splyce

Initially setting out to give an overview of works by Nigel Parish ( Splyce ) , I decided very soon thereafter that there are simply too many images of his projects that I would like to post. So ... Today there is just this one; more later.

Parish has received a Bronze 2008 IDIBC Award of Excellence for the renovation of this West Vancouver home. Simple graceful exterior with Parish's characteristically thorough approach to interior design and detailing. Click on an individual image to enlarge it:






(by the way, love the shoes in the photo above, left - just like
the fish in one of Le Corbusier's photos. Cheeky)

This 2008 house might be joining this year's West Vancouver Museum House Tour roster. *fingers crossed*
