I want to thank the Brian Libby for taking the time to write a great article, and The Morrisons (Theo and Theresa), for taking such amazing photos. They were great to work with.
We just found out today that sky house made the cover of the Dec 2014/Jan 2015 issue of Dwell featuring “The New Prefab”. It hasn’t hit the newsstands yet, but keep your eyes out. This image is of the proof copy sitting on someone’s desk in New York…..
The whistler house is under construction. The prefabricated SIP wall panels and roof trusses are installed. Carport and bridge are framed. Just in time for winter.
The foundations are poured for the whistler house. The carport is framed and the site is being prepped for arrival of the prefabricated walls and roof.
The June/July 2014 Issue of Dance Central features an interview with PLATFORM’s own Jesse Garlick talking about the Dance Machine collaboration with Justine Chambers and Su-Feh Lee, amongst other things. It also features some nice photos. Read the entire issue here:

Many of you already know, but I am very excited to announce that I have started a new architecture practice in Vancouver.
PLATFORM architecture + design ltd. opened its doors several weeks ago. I would like to invite you all to come over to the new office, say hello and have some refreshments to mark the launch of this new venture.
PLATFORM architecture + design ltd., is a professional architectural practice devoted to high quality design at a range of scales. Right now we are small (a staff of 2). Current projects include a house in Whistler, and a renovation of a Community Hall in Vancouver, but we are looking for new projects. Getting several more residential projects under our belt would be a great way to finish up 2014, so if you know of anyone looking to build, please let me know.
I hope to see you all on Thursday, February 13, 2014, at 1394 Kingsway from 4pm – 8pm. The office is directly above the new Our Town Cafe at Knight and Kingsway St. in East Vancouver.
RSVP if you can.
