Homeowner Janet Willson took an unorthodox approach to explaining her vision to her architect. On their second meeting to discuss her 616-square-foot laneway house in east Vancouver, Janet asked architect Marianne Amodio to lie down on a table similar to the one a massage therapist would use. She then gently guided Marianne through a Feldenkrais session (a series of exercises designed to improve movement) by repositioning her arms and legs. A decades-long devotee, she wanted Marianne to experience how she would use the space to practice personal Feldenkrais and meditate, but also employ it as an extra entertaining hub away from the main house where she lives with her husband, Christopher Zuberec.
