Live & Work Space in Strathcona

Location: Strathcona, Vancouver

Date: January 9, 2020

Service: Renovations and Additions

 

Richard and Esther, local artists, were fortunate enough to buy a tired, dated commercial space in the Strathcona neighbourhood. Why fortunate? This unique building presented them with an opportunity to have their work and living space coexist under one roof. Kennedy Construction’s first job was to completely gut the building and then working with Birmingham & Wood Architects, reconfigure the space into a one-bedroom apartment at the back and a studio/gallery as the storefront.

 

 

Numerous details had to be addressed such as seismic upgrades, building codes, fire prevention, sprinkler system, energy efficiencies, commercial glazing, and the latest in electrical and plumbing materials and installation. An interior waterfall red staircase was built up through the extended high ceilings to a rooftop patio above. The modern interior allows Richard and Esther to feature all their art as well as many other pieces created by fellow artists in their neighbourhood.  A truly unique and worthwhile use of a building that could easily have fallen into the hands of a wrecking ball.
