Sailboat-style living at architect's narrow Vancouver home
from Globe and Mail
For many architects, designing their own home is a dream and a rare luxury. Brian Wakelin purchased a large East Vancouver lot, with an idea to build an infill duplex and keep one half as his family home. Wakelin, who is a principal at the award-winning firm Public Architecture, created a long and narrow two-storey, two-bedroom home for his family of four, with a footprint of 12 by 50 feet. "It is a little bit like living on a sailboat," says Wakelin.
