3633 Selkirk Street, Vancouver
This architectural masterpiece captures the splendor of iconic modernism, and yet, it is tucked away within the city’s most traditional and exclusive First Shaughnessy. Built in 2006 by one of Canada’s premier architects, Richard Henriquez—recipient of the Order of Canada & the Governor General’s Medal—the 5,186 square-foot home sits on a 14,811 square-foot lot surrounded by lush landscaping. The work of art is the product of an intense decade-long collaboration between architect & owner, Gordon Shrum. No detail was overlooked by the duo. The placement of indoor and outdoor lighting is a stroke of precision craftsmanship. The home is spread over three levels, and exposed concrete is juxtaposed with the warmth of natural finishes. Rarely does such an extraordinary home come onto the market.
