The Vanglo house is back on the market! Our long term followers may remember this house from 2014, when we had the pleasure to sell it, but for those of you that are new (or have forgotten), it’s quite an incredible home. Built by the Vanglo Sustainable Construction Group, its a state-of-art, green home, located at 135 East 17th Ave.


The lines and fenestration (window placement) of this home immediately draw you in, but what makes Vanglo’s masterpiece ‘green’? Well, to begin with…the team re-used and recycled many of the materials from the original teardown on the property. From there they set out to blow away the requirements of the BC Building Code by being 25% more energy efficient. To achieve this off-the-charts efficiency, Vanglo installed triple pane windows, Blue Skin VP membrane, and superior insulation. But what really sets it apart, is that the Vanglo House is as beautiful as it is sustainable.


A walk through the two-story stunner reveals beauty in all the details, complete with custom milled cabinetry, polished concrete floor, and in-floor radiant heating. The Chef's kitchen comes fully equipped with high-end appliances including:  Liebherr, Viking, and Wolf. It’s fully wired for media, and has an engineered exterior fibre cement panel that ensures low maintenance upkeep. But the pièce de résistance has to be the 300 sqft outdoor lounge on level 2. This private space has an almost spa-like feel to it, but we see it as the perfect spot for a dance party (or three). And because the Vanglo House is designed with an inverted floor plan, maximum enjoyment of this lounge is guaranteed.



The ultimate shout-out for this build has to go to visionary Architect, Oliver Lang. His goal for the Vanglo House was to strike a fine balance between simple elegance and engaging playfulness. And honestly, all Blu can say is bravo Oliver, bravo!

The Vanglo House was a winner of a City of Vancouver - Urban Design Award for Innovation, the Greater Vancouver Home Builder Association Ovation Award for Best Custom Home category, and finalist for Custom Home Under 2000sf.  The home also boasts a National Sam Awards Finalist nomination (Canadian Home Builders Association)
