About the Vancouver Special Print:

Unique to Vancouver as its only indigenous house form, the Special is a vernacular response to the city’s stringent setback by-laws and the permissible building envelope. Sometimes described as a two storey rancher turned at right angles to the street, it is alleged that the style met with great favour with the city’s engineering department for its ease of servicing, given its no-basement footprint. Often attributed to the demand for economical housing with the influx of European immigrants, the plans found favour with multi-generational households with most of the Specials being configured for a “ground-level” suite.
