Ten projects that represent the highest standards of architecture and urban design are the recipients of the first-ever City of Vancouver Urban Design Awards.
ECOheritage, a sustainable heritage design project in the heart of Vancouver's Strathcona neighbourhood, is one of them.
A major goal of the project was to demonstrate how high-performance design could be compatible with heritage conservation. Cascadia Windows played a part in that role, supplying fiberglass windows and doors for the homes - each of which now boast a multitude of sustainable features, including solar hot water panels and rooftop rainwater capture.
"Urban Design Award recipients are excellent examples of how innovative and imaginative design compliments Vancouver's natural beauty."
- Vancouver Mayor, Gregor Robertson
