Vancouver BC based Architects:  Hearth Architectural Inc. / Special Projects

Projects under this heading include those requiring Heritage Revitalization Agreements as well as smaller scale planning exercises.  Many of these projects are currently under development.

Infill Development is an idea recently introduced to the West End of downtown Vancouver BC.  This project under development consists of the conversion of an existing heritage asset into a multiple residence structure and includes a substantial infill proposal at the rear of the property for additional residences.

Another exciting project in the West End of downtown Vancouver BC is the preservation of another heritage asset, but proposing a multi-storey addition for common areas and additional residences.

Hearth Architectural has worked with the City of Vancouver to test proposed zoning.  In the example below, we were asked to apply the new RM-7 zoning (Norquay) to a townhouse typology of various scales.

The Strathcona neighbourhood of Vancouver is a distinct zone of heritage styled buildings.  While usually pre 1920, we were asked to develop a non-date heritage asset.  We have proposed to preserve the building, while adding more contemporary residences to the rear of the property.

Maple Ridge BC is a growing community east of Metro Vancouver.  Within this community there are vast tracts of land slated for urban-edge development.  Hearth undertook the exercise of applying adjacent planning principles to some of these sites.
