It was a sprawling modernist home designed by a quietly famous architect. And now it’s gone, a casualty of an alleged plot against a Vancouver woman by her estranged husband.
The 10,000-sq. ft. house at 6289 Carnarvon St. was demolished last summer without the permission or knowledge of its owner, Jin Fang Li, according to a statement of claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court this month. Li claims that her ex, Sheng Yun Dong, masterminded the destruction of the home she had planned to renovate and live in with her daughter.
