Port Moody, Cecile Drive residence

Typed note on verso:
NATIONAL DESIGN AWARD 1969
This condominium housing - a pioneer of it's kind in BC, through the simple use of local materials and good siting achieves a very natural architectural character. The retention of treed areas, the consideration of grading for access, and siting for views, indicate the high degree of attention given to living considerations. The suites are well planned. The vertical stacking of the suites was necessitated by requirements in the early BC strata titles act concerning individual ownership which have since been changed. Good housing provided at a reasonable cost.
