Spuraway Garden, North Vancouver
Nestled in the forest of West Vancouver, this condo from the 1960’s, in its original condition, was begging for a complete overhaul with a fresh new look and floorplan. Although the unit was shy of 800sqf, I wanted to create the illusion of effortless spaciousness. I strove to capture the elusive feeling of exhalation; the kind of space you walk into and feel invited to unwind and recharge.
The fresh air, rich natural tones and textures of the surrounding environment influenced the direction of the interior design. However, I was cautious not to lean too heavily into the archetypal West Coast, forest home aesthetic. I accomplished this by using natural materials like oak, stone, and steel in a clean, minimal way, playing with dimension and proportion to create a strong visual impact.
Due to limitations involving size, unit orientation, and concrete ceilings and walls, I had work diligently to be intentional and innovative to ensure there was adequate lighting and creative storage. Ultimately, this led to a space that was not only aesthetically beautiful but functionally exceptional. A forested oasis, a calming interior, mere steps from the city centre.
