A contemporary narrow home sits on a 20 by 200 feet lot in Vancouver, British Columbia. The structure is the culmination of the collaborative efforts of architect Randy Bens and Falken Reynolds Interiors.
The size of the plot definitely calls for an innovative approach to layout design, where both function and aesthetic meet and co-exist. Naturally, when one does not have enough space, the only way to go is up. Thus the contemporary narrow home towers with a slightly slanted roof. Both the abode and its interior have a strong Scandinavian inspiration. The firms installed 11 skylights and a courtyard with the aim of increasing light exposure. In addition, the use of a bright color palette throughout the contemporary narrow home effortlessly gives off the feeling of a more connected space.
