The Village Bloomery

Design-Build Project

Vancouver, BC

CONCEPT

VB 25

The main idea of this project was to create a playful and welcoming experience. The architectural concrete walls made this space modern but in a way, cold. By introducing wood as the main construction material (white Oak and eastern maple) and also by playing with the rooflines” of a little village, the store now has a warmer entrance and a vibrant interior that tries to match the quality of the people that work and interact within the space. 

At the back we find the Flower Shop, where: it’s what’s on the inside that counts”.

Located at the heart of The Waterfall Building (Architect: Arthur Erickson) near Granville Island.

Fabrication: Farrell’s Custom Woodwork / Grischa Woodwork
