- Commercial: Border Solutions
Before this bright and open transformation, this office was very dark and closed. The goal of the client was to make the space more of a modern concept incorporating glass walls that still enabled the business to operate with the confidentiality of their clients. In addition, we created a welcoming, sophisticated board room which was a missing key business function. Now that all files could be stored online, we were able to re-purpose the storage area into office space.
- Second Street Grocery
From 1912 to 1993, this dual commercial/residential property had been the longest running neighborhood grocery store in Glenbrooke North, New Westminster. After years of only being used as a residential accommodation, it was time for the building to return to its original exterior aspect, including a main level mixed commercial zoning with a glazed storefront and corner entrance, and an upstairs rental apartment above. By using evidence on the building itself and where necessary, archival images of similar Edwardian vernacular commercial style buildings, we were able to reinstate this historic heritage property.
