Vancouver Architectural Firm Says Smaller Spaces is the New Trend

Vancouver Interior Design Founder, Formwerks, Shares the Secret of Creating User-Friendly Architecture in Smaller Spaces for Vancouver Residents

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - September 17, 2015) - The team at Formworks, an Architectural Firm based in Vancouver that also does interior design. For 20 years they have been creating some of Vancouver's most beautiful and sought-after homes. As property rates continue to escalate, fewer people are looking for the grand mansions of yesteryear. Instead, they are looking for solutions to make smaller spaces more beautiful and livable-and they are looking to designers to do it.

"People's needs are evolving and changing," says a company representative. "The Modern Home Tour is happening on September 19th, and it's the first time a condo has been included in the tour."

In a region like Vancouver, people are looking for opportunities to do more with less. As home prices skyrocket, young families are faced with the decision of leaving the city or bringing their families up in townhouses and condos.

"Although this is the norm in many European and Asian countries, it can feel a bit cramped by North American standards. As a result, people are looking towards design to help them do more with these smaller spaces."

To create these urban homes, flexible space is becoming a more poplar theme. For example, rooms perform multiple functions, furniture moves, and there is storage hidden everywhere.

"People are looking for ways to live comfortable in smaller spaces. It's a theme we've been seeing for the last few years. By carefully listening to our clients, we work to translate different wishes and needs into architecture that embodies all functional requirements within an artistic building form."
