Western Living – Finalist for Arthur Erickson Memorial Award for Emerging Architect

What a great honor to be selected as a finalist for WL Designers Of The Year 2018. To be in the company of my cohorts who are selected this year and those who had been finalists in the previous years.

I have admired the work of many of the distinguished judging panel members and to have my work accepted as a finalist by them is amazing.
Thank you Ema Peter for the great presentation of my work and Western Living Magazine for your support and the opportunity.

Western Living Ilseview Feature

When designer Negar Ghorashi spotted this 1959 Lewis post-and-beam in the Whytecliff neighbourhood of West Vancouver, it had been in a relatively untouched state for more than 40 years. But something about its location charmed her, the way it was perched up over the water in the woods yet still a part of a small community. “We were looking for the sense of calm that comes from being so close to nature,” says Ghorashi, who moved to Vancouver from Iran in 2001. “And that sense of neighbourhood that was hard to find in other parts of West Vancouver. When we came to see this house, people were out walking their dogs, and those dogs come strolling in now if we’re home and the door is open.”

And despite the chaos on the surrounding property—she and her husband had to haul out 15 trucks’ worth of garbage and dead trees from the yard once they got to work renovating—she spotted the potential. “We could see the feel we wanted to get,” she explains, “although the home didn’t have much to offer—except for that post-and-beam ceiling.
