West Point Grey renovation, by William Edward Summers

18 Oct

This renovation by William Edward Summers at West Point Grey, and Collingwood near Kits, and Jericho beaches in Vancouver,was designed for an heiress,and her husband. The large old house was gutted down to the bare studs and completely redesigned. It was a heritage designated building, so the exterior could not be modified. However the interior was completely altered, with the living, dinning, and kitchen areas moved to the second floor, to take advantage of the view of English Bay, and downtown Vancouver.

Arts Notes
“The Georgia Straight” newspaper, page 27, Vancouver, B.C., August, 1993

Designing lavish homes for the rich and famous is the stock-in-trade of Kitsilano-based architect William Edward Summers, but he’s been known to dabble in artistic, high-concept projects,, too—for example, he was design consultant for the Canadian Craft Museum’s festive Treasures exhibit last December. Now, Summers has designed the steel exhibit structures for the street-level Window Art Gallery Project, an initiative of the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association. The project, which features the work of local artists, opens August 5 for six weeks at four window venues in the downtown core—including the Portraits show, at the Bank of Montreal at Granville and Pender, which displays images of Vancouver and Vancouverites in various media.
