For the entire team at ReCanvas, it was very exciting to find out recently that we received two nominations for HAVAN awards. HAVAN (Homebuilders Association Vancouver) is the leading association for home builders, developers, renovators, designers, suppliers and other professionals. In other words, businesses just like ours. Getting nominated for any prestigious award is an achievement. But when it’s from an association made up of our industry peers, and you get two nominations, it has much more meaning and significance.
About the HAVAN Awards
The HAVAN Awards for Housing Excellence — formerly the Ovation Awards — create excitement and elevate awareness of the world-class housing built by our local Vancouver professionals. A main purpose of the awards program is to establish trust and appreciation of the home building industry. They also help strengthen industry partnerships, boost consumer confidence and create media buzz.
The ReCanvas Projects Nominated for a HAVAN Awards
Our custom-built home on W 19th St. in North Vancouver was a nominee for the award in the ‘Best Custom Home: $1.5 Million to Under $2 Million’ category.
Ultra-modern inside and out, this home is remarkably comfortable and inviting. With attention to every detail, from the overall design balance of the home, to the innovative wall treatment in the dining room, this home is a delight for the senses. Lots of light, day and night, give it a spacious, airy feeling.
Custom building a home like this is a challenge. But it’s the sort of challenge we thrive on.
A custom home that we built on Alpine Way in Whistler, BC, was a nominee in the ‘Custom Homes under $1,000,000’ category. With massive windows overlooking the valley below, and a full-length second floor balcony, this home truly lets the outdoors in. The result is a bright spaciousness in a modern home design with mid-century modern furnishings and accessories.
The awards were presented at the Awards Gala on April 30th. Unfortunately, we didn’t win a HAVAN Award, but we are still stoked to be nominated by an industry association of our peers! One that shares the same vision, goals and passion for quality home building across BC.
So, now we look forward to next year. We’ll be out there doing our best and aiming for not just more nominations, but a 2023 HAVAN Award!
