Paradigm is a custom built BONE Structure home, boasting Net Zero Energy efficiency and setting a new benchmark for green construction in Vancouver. Scoring a rating of 95 on the EnerGuide scale, Paradigm will serve as an industry leader for a future in which homes are built to last.
All BONE Structure homes are designed and assembled with a patented galvanized steel construction system inspired by the aerospace industry. Each home is designed using 3D software and each individual piece of steel required for the project is laser cut. There is no construction waste produced and no cutting, welding, or re-working is required. Galvanized steel is extremely durable and will not bend, crumple, or buckle over time. Immune to rot, mold, and deterioration, Paradigm will be structurally sound for generations to come. BONE Structure homes come with an incomparable soya based polyurethane thermal envelope, which gives them optimal insulation.
FOR SALE by Blu Realty’s Shawn Lee and Todd Talbot (star of the hit TV series Love It Or List It Vancouver), Paradigm is a five-bedroom masterpiece spread over three levels, offering the ultimate in contemporary family living. The main unit is comprised of three large bedrooms, each with a walk in closet, as well as four bathrooms. The open concept living and dining area features huge sliding glass doors with close to 20 ft. of glazing that open to a huge terrace for seamless indoor/outdoor living. Paradigm has spectacular views of Vancouver Harbour, the iconic Iron Worker’s Memorial, and of the distant Mt. Baker.
The garden level unit features two ample bedrooms and 1 bathroom, and can be used as a mortgage helper, as quarters for a multigenerational family, or incorporated back into the main unit for a total of more than 4,000 sq ft. The living area opens up to a large ground-level patio, which bridges the indoor and outdoor living areas.
Located in North Vancouver, Paradigm is within close proximity to Downtown Vancouver, the North Shore Mountains and the Sea to Sky for trips to Squamish, Whistler, and beyond.
Yet, the most impressive feature of this home is its incredible energy efficiency. Building on BONE Structure’s incomparable thermal envelope, TERRAMechomes has installed a variety of mechanical systems including a 10kw solar array on the roof to provide most of the home’s energy needs, a rainwater system for irrigation and flushing, as well as air and water radiant heat pumps. The detached two-car garage has a green roof that limits the storm water runoff and energy consumption, and an electric vehicle charging station is also included. Paradigm is at the forefront of eco-conscious luxury living in Vancouver.
