INFO

This private and modern A room studio in Vancouver features high ceilings designed with operational and aesthetic considerations for the intended use of the building. Paned, wrought iron muntin windows with a decorative header give this building an industrial charm. Its symmetry is emphasized by the fa├žade, which transitions from a textured base to a smooth middle and crown. Framed by the thick detailed cornice that hides a roof top deck, the suspended canopy introduces a feeling of the classic grandeur associated with the golden age of music.
