Private Residence House Progress

Our project for a private residence here in Vancouver is coming along.

The front of the house has been finished in stucco and composite panels. There will be a cedar screen in front of the Master Bedroom window that will be able to slip open for more daylight or be closed for more privacy. The Living room window will have a translucent film applied to its lower 4′ for visual privacy while still allowing in daylight.

Last week Proscenium organized a clothing and item drive for the WISH Charity. The WISH Charity focuses exclusively on aiding female sex workers by providing a non-judgemental place where they can get nutritious hot meals, showers and hygiene items and clothing. They also help by providing an on-site nurse, referrals to detox centres/rehabilitation houses and shelters for upwards of 150 women.

Thank you to all of our collaborators and friends that dropped off clothing and items to our office May 4th-8th!
