The project comprised a three-part major renovation of interior spaces within the headquarters of the Architectural Institute of British Columbia in downtown Vancouver, BC. Part one involved the demolition of a previous tenant’s space and a renovation and expansion of the AIBC gallery. Parts two and three were focused on workspace renovations.

The primary goal with the intervention was to respect the language of the existing spaces while adding maximum flexibility and performance capacity. The Institute required an extension of the gallery for public gatherings and a considerable reconfiguration of lower-level workspaces to accommodate the AIBC’s growing workforce. The second level also demanded a rethinking of the conference room to make way for more workspaces.
