"We are thrilled to be honoured. Osler Residences is the first of several townhome projects that we are building on the Westside of Vancouver, and we wanted to create a display home that exemplifies the design standards of Alabaster Homes." 

— Yosh Kasahara, director of sales and marketing


We collaborated with interior designer Gaile Guevara Studio to create the inspired space. Creative director, Gaile Guevara, aimed to highlight the colour palette of the local BC landscape, and feature the work of local artists, artisanal trades, creators, and retailers.


"We transformed Osler Residences into a home perfect for the modern family that loves to entertain a large group in an open plan, while allowing for the opportunity to host an intimate dinner for loved ones or guests." -

— Gaile Guevara, Creative Director of
Gaile Guevara Studio

Thank you to the GVHBA for holding a great event and thank you to the judging panel and the Association for recognizing the hard work put in by our team. 

Osler Residences

We present to you, Osler Residences, our first completed project of 18, three-bedroom plus den and flex townhomes in Marpole. 

We collaborated with the city’s best to showcase the floorplan’s functionality and its possibility of creative use. We drew inspiration from the colour palettes of our local BC landscape, resulting in a home perfect for the modern Vancouver family.


Something that was also important to us was to create a home and feel that has a connection to its community. Each photo features accessories, artwork, and furniture from Vancouver brands that are making a significant impact in the design world both locally and abroad.

“Sharing the stories of the passionate people behind each detail and knowing they share similar values are some of the simple ways we can create an environment that is more meaningful.”

Osler Residences has been named as a finalist for Best Multifamily Display Suite of the 2018 Ovation Awards.


We would like to thank everyone who made this possible
