Description:

“The M.A.D. (house) is the owner’s concept of a Multi-Adult Dwelling in Vancouver, housing three sets of adults from the same family within a 2880 square foot volume, with wide open shared public spaces and private separated suites. Novell teamed up with Marianne Amodio Architecture Studios to realize our second collaboration together, this time a custom home.

The design boasts peekaboo views from floor-level windows, an exuberant use of tile and colour, and coloured glass mosaic chips embedded in the concrete floor. Construction wizardry was used to execute this custom home build where the family of minimalist details included a structural column that also carries rainwater, flush material transitions, full height doors, an absence of moulding or trims, and a pristine crisp white flawless finish.

The home is another approach to the Vancouver trend of multi-generational living, helping to improve housing affordability and availability through thoughtful design.”
