Blackfish Homes recently completed this modern BUILT GREEN® Platinum home in Vancouver, BC. The three storey, 3,500 square foot residence was designed to be highly energy efficient, have excellent indoor air quality, and be very durable. The home also achieved an impressive EnerGuide rating of 85.
The home features Innotech windows and doors in charchoal black exterior and interior. Two of our favourite spaces in the home are the dining room with classic Terrace Swing Doors that open onto a large outdoor living area and the living room with many large windows placed high on the walls that brighten the space.
Thank you Blackfish for trusting us with your building project!

It takes an experienced building team to design and build a home like Cadence. With over 1,500 square feet of glass (weighing in at over 10,000 lbs!), dozens of configurations, and in as many shapes, the window and door package was highly complex.
Joined by our long-time Innotech dealer, North Pacific Window & Glass, the homeowner and builder came to the mainland to visit our showroom in Burnaby. Spending many hours reviewing the architect’s blueprints, there were countless details to discuss: door types, swing direction, locking options, window size limits, window arch radius, glazing options, finish colours and more.
Once all the details were finalized, our dealer took the time to come to our head office several more times to ensure the order was error free. Together, we made sure all of the windows and doors were to code, built to the architect’s specifications and delivered on time for the builder. The team effort led by North Pacific was a success: Cadence was built to exacting standards.

Glenbrook in Calgary, Alberta is quickly becoming one of the city's most popular redevelopment neighbourhoods. Currently under construction in Glenbrook is the contemporary duplex named "Mosman 42" by Campbell Design and Shelby Homes.
The building team's vision is to bring contemporary urban design and quality built homes to Glenbrook. Some of Mosman 42's features include:
- Metal corrugated, acrylic stucco and brick exterior
- European energy efficient tilt and turn windows
- High-security exterior doors
- Double detached garage
- Spacious 9 foot ceilings
- Vaulted master bedroom
- Gas fireplace in living room
- Quartz countertops
- Stainless steel appliance package
- Hardwood and tile floors
- Fully built out basement
- Landscaping package
"We made the decision to design and build Mosman 42 with durable building products," says Tim Saunders of Campbell Design. "Calgary home buyers want homes that not only have all the latest design features, but they also want homes that are well-built, energy efficient and safe for their families."
One of our projects, the Queen of Peace Monastery in the Squamish Valley in British Columbia, was featured in the Spring 2013 issue of DDC Journal.
The Oceanside Beach House is located only 1,000 feet from the Pacific Ocean on the Oregon coast. Designed by architect Jeff Stern in close collaboration with the homeowners, the home is a modern interpretation of a traditional Oregon beach house.
"We were looking for cost effective windows and doors that were suitable for the harsh coastal environment," says Jeff. "After seeing the Innotech products at the Z-haus in Portland, we felt the Innotech windows with the tilt and turn operation suited both the design of the house and the owners' lifestyle much better than other types of windows more commonly available. The substantial profile and the ability to do a very large Tilt + Slide Door were also very appealing."
The wedge shaped design of the home was inspired by the triangular site and built to maximize the spectacular panoramic views from all angles. The interior of the home features a gently sloping ceiling and carefully placed openings to maximize the views and track the path of the sun throughout the day.
