The result of a partnership between government, academia and industry, West House was on display during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games at the Vancouver Yaletown LiveCity Site and will be moved afterwards to a City of Vancouver owned site where it will serve as a technology showcase, research and development test bed, and "living lab".
West House is a made-in-Vancouver demonstration of a sustainable laneway home. It showcases leading-edge small footprint residential design, energy efficient, integrated systems and interactive technologies that encourage a sustainable lifestyle.
