What is the Albrighton modern blog about?

This blog will mainly discuss topics to do with innovative modern architecture, Vancouver lofts, building methods, and display some very nice real estate that reflect good design, and not "builder spec-specials". Additionally real estate topics and unique homes will be posted. There is never enough good architecture displayed online. In return this will draw like minded people together and use Albrighton marketing when it comes time to sell or buy their property. If you have an article you would like posted or topic discussed please email me at [email protected]
