50s Modern

Wong Residence
I've always been drawn to this house.
It turns out that it is regarded as a fine example of the style.
It's very unusual to see a rock like this left in place in Vancouver but the landscape architect, Cornelia Oberlander got an exemption back in 1955.

Wong Residence, 1955
Architect: Duncan McNab

Somebody who was or is definitely influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Is it very different from the neighbouring houses?

There's no shortage of windows in the house. Judging from the sky they are about to get rained on.

I like them too - as Andy said, lots of light.
