A MOODY HERITAGE LOFT IN GASTOWN, VANCOUVER
When homeowners asked us to redesign their recently purchased two-storey heritage loft in Gastown, Vancouver —with vintage brick, original wood floors and iron beams — we thought they were going to ask for the modern Vancouver special: something Scandinavian, minimalist, probably white and restrained. Instead this global duo could not have surprised us more. They wanted a home that was dark, moody, swanky and that unequivocally channelled old New York. These two were adventurous and playful and their new home was going to reflect that.
