Vancouver-based studio Omer Arbel has remodeled a heritage building in Gastown, a national historic site in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
46 Water Street Heritage Building by Omer Arbel:
“The project consisted of a seismic upgrade and restoration of a heritage building in Vancouver’s historic Gastown district, and a loft interior design project.
The loft is organized around a new courtyard open to above, inserted into the heritage fabric of the building, allowing light into the centre of the very deep plan.
All other interior elements are rendered crisply using precisely machined elements, conceived to stand in strong contract to the rough heritage fabric of the existing shell.”
