At @luppolo_brewing, floating wood shelves (which house cool graphic growlers) are made from reclaimed Douglas fir salvaged from a demolished commercial building. Design: @oneseed_arch. Architecture: @ronhart.cove. 📷: @jp_delage.

We know we just moved to a bright and shiny new office but it's hard not to be a little jealous of @mckinleyburkart's new Vancouver digs. We'll have a story coming soon to profile their sleek new design but for now, please soak up the amazing Railtown views and hot lighting. (Not pictured: a giant Kewpie doll in the kitchen.)

Railtown Design District

When Frank Architecture was tasked with renovating this vacant suite in a Calgary heritage building, they started from scratch. Principals Kate Allen, Kelly Morrison and Kristen Lien pulled off the drywall to expose the existing brick and then layered on modern details—an imported-from-Italy Scavolini kitchen, an angular light fixture and smooth Corian countertops. The sleek finishes are a textural contrast to the rugged brick and warm, weathered floor, but a grey-toned palette—colours natural to the space—ties all of the elements, old and new, together, “to work with the character of the existing building,” says Lien.

Simplicity gets a luxurious twist in a stunning False Creek condo that takes its design cues from the tech world. Design: @adambeckerdesign. 📷: @christopherrollett.


Have you visited @luppolo_brewing yet? The East Vancouver taproom features a modern-but-cozy design. Their concrete bar was cast on-site and gets its distinct finish from a form lined with salvaged cedar fence boards. Design: @oneseed_arch. 📷: JP Delage.


This modern kitchen gets a touch of rustic with a Restoration Hardware table. Design: @andrearodmaninteriors. 📷: @emaphotographi.


Homeowner Pamela Spadavecchia and her son, Nico, relax in the main living space, which is oriented to the great view outside the windows—even the pair of U Turn chairs from Bensen can pivot around. Design: @andrearodmaninteriors. 📷: @emaphotographi.


This North Vancouver home is black, white, and reaaaaaally beautiful. Design: @andrearodmaninteriors. 📷: @emaphotographi.
