Passive House triplex proposed for Grandview-Woodland in Vancouver

Apr 22 2021, 9:48 am

The northeast corner of the intersection of East Georgia Street and Woodland Drive could be redeveloped into a contemporary triplex homes with a Passive House green building standard.

Michael Lemon Architect’s new development application for 644 Woodland Drive in Vancouver’s Grandview-Woodland neighbourhood calls for three townhouse units, replacing a 1955-built duplex on the site.

The design incorporates pitched gable roof form that “creates a cohesive streetscape,” but also “presents an individual identity” to each home. There is also a cantilevered shading structure to the south to manage solar heat gain.

Outdoor roof decks are provided for the two northern units.

“The proposed project is an ideal candidate for this site. The ground oriented family sized units make good use of the corner lot siting and benefit from the adjacency to Woodland Park,” reads the design rationale.

The total floor area is close to 4,000 sq ft for a floor area ratio density of 0.98. Two parking spaces will be provided at the laneway.
