Measured’s Veil House has been featured in Canadian Architect as a Citation Award winner at the 2020 Wood Design and Building Awards. Measured is one of 16 Canadian firms who’s project received an award from the CWC, with Veil House the only urban house on the list.
“The functionality and diversity of wood is illustrated in the wide range of projects that won this year’s awards. With an increasing focus on renewable materials and net-zero buildings, the use of wood is a solution embraced by many architects and engineers.” – Canadian Architect
Veil House is a study in using wood — often thought of as a conventional go-to material for Vancouver’s domestic architecture — in an original, contemporary way. The result is an elevation of wood both through composition and in evolving the traditional typologies of residential architecture while still drawing inspiration from and conforming with neighbourhood norms. Veil House also strived to upcycle used wood material to reduce its footprint as part of its overall sustainability goals.
