Heritage Office Renovation

Gastown studio after renovation2 floors of a 1912 commercial office space in Vancouver’s Historic Gastown were renovated for a growing mobile application development studio. This historic space shows early 19th century heavy timber construction with expansive fir posts & beams along with solid 2′x8′ fir timber flooring systems.

EXLE updated the space from its latest 90′s renovation with new interior finishings including clean white walls, bright color selections, lighting appropriate for extensive computer use and enough power to make some really cool apps. We were happy to meet all of the technological requirements for this studio while keeping evidence of the building’s past exposed for all to explore.

A favorite feature of this building is its original century old open birdcage service elevator.  The large freight elevator is hand operated and slowly but reliably takes you through the structural bones of the building, past century old doors that seep light into the dark elevator shaft, shining light on reminders of times past, such as handwritten addresses tacked to the walls of the elevator shaft and remnants of union stickers from the 50′s,   Just another heritage office renovation by the Extraordinary League Contracting team.
