A hip young couple living in Vancouver’s Yaletown entertainment district gets married and decides to start a family. Requiring more space than they can afford in Yaletown, but deliberately wanting to avoid the typical retreat to the suburbs, the couple purchases a run-down loft space a few blocks away in Crosstown – i.e. on the edge of Vancouver’s ‘undesirable’ Lower East Side neighborhood. With modest means and a tight timeline (baby on the way) a former after-hours party venue was converted into a home for a growing family.Save this picture!© John SinalRecommended ProductsWindowsRodecaAluminium WindowsWindowsSolarluxSliding Window – CeroWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcThe existing building at 550 Beatty St was Vancouver’s first ‘New York style open plan loft’ – a 1907 warehouse that was originally retrofitted into residential open-plan lofts in 1981. In this new third iteration of the life of the building, the two-floor dwelling is programmed with 1000sf of living and entertaining ‘public’ space upstairs and 1000sf of convertible sleeping and play ‘private’ space downstairs.Save this picture!© John SinalThe lower floor plan employs a series of sliding partitions that convert the layout from a single open plan space during the day, into a two bedroom plus nursery layout at night.

The decisions of individual families to collectively reclaim neglected parts of the urban fabric presents a compelling model for urban revitalization and adaptive re-use. The design demonstrates a creative architectural response to the challenges of creating ‘rooms’ in generic loft spaces – which typically only have access to light and air at one end of an extremely deep floor plan.Project gallerySee allShow lessL’Institut / LUNDI et DEMIArticlesDovecote Studio / Haworth TompkinsArticlesProject locationAddress:Crosstown, Vancouver, CanadaLocation to be used only as a reference.
