Floorplans: Mid-century marvel
When interior designer Mark Pritchard and his partner, landscape architect Daryl Tyacke, went house hunting in a traditional neighbourhood in East Vancouver, B.C., they chose what Mark calls a "plain-Jane bungalow" with potential. The couple redesigned and renovated the 1940s property, blowing out a wall, installing a modern kitchen and adding professional architectural lighting. Today, their sharply dressed 940 sq. ft. abode houses a finely honed collection of original midcentury pieces, contemporary artwork and custom furniture -- plus a few off-the-shelf selections thrown in for good measure.
