Dowtown Vancouver – Modern Dark Condo

This recreational home of a wealth manager needed to highlight the grittier historical roots of the downtown eastside neighborhood in Vancouver. Rich in history, this condo development was part of an ambitious neighborhood gentrification to move it’s shady past into one that is thriving. Formally the iconic Woodwards building, we were inspired to weave this darker element into the design and commissioned an artist that worked with concrete as a medium to translate the 20 foot entrance hall to showcase the map of the downtown eastside. Modern materials such as metals, stone, glass and leather interplays with red splashes throughout to mimic the graffiti found in the edgier back alleys.
