In it's former life it was home to two guys, a pool table, big screen TV and not much else —the quintessential bachelor pad, à la Joey and Chandler. I first laid eyes on this space shortly after N had bought it. Spectacular north east views 20 odd floors up in Gastown, meant sunrises and mountain views for days. Built on the historic Woodwards site there were tall marching orders on the line for this iconic address. The wear and tear over the past years as a rental had taken it's toll on the space. It was in major need of some TLC.
Moving to this space N decided to start fresh, keeping only a handful of pieces from his last place. Looking over the list that included designs by Le Corbusier and Bertoia, it was clear this space was headed towards midcentury.
N liked the classics but wanted something unique. Looking to incorporate his vintage camera collection into the space it only seemed natural for the space to have an industrial edge. A modern industrial or refined grit if you will. After a little planning, ALOT of elevator trips and some care, we landed on something great. The new floors, custom barn doors, tile, counters, fixtures, paint and furniture brought us to our final resting place. A retreat on top of the hustle and bustle of one of Vancouver's hippest neighbourhoods.
