Lofty Goals: Vancouver’s Best Loft Spaces

August 5, 2017

Open, spacious, adaptable. Discover some of the coolest spaces the city of Vancouver has to offer.  

Whenever you’re getting a group together – whether it’s a work meeting, a social affair or something else entirely – you need a place to put them. Your needs change depending on the situation, but luckily the city of Vancouver offers up a variety of different spaces that cater to different moods, tastes, and functions. Here, we showcase some of our favourite lofts for every scenario.

Team Offsite

Whether you’re team bonding or forecasting the next quarter, this space is equipped for presentations, work sessions and group thinks. A full kitchen and two bathrooms keep stomachs full and bladders empty so the focus is on the work, and the minimal design lets the day unfold without distractions.

If you’re looking for a setting with character for your next editorial shoot, here’s 3,000 square feet of it. Exposed Douglas fir beams, massive windows and skylights add to this space’s major personality – the camera loves it.

When it’s time to roll up your sleeves, this Gastown loft is an ideal spot to get down to business. This working jewelry design studio seats 14 so you’ll have plenty of room for eager participants, and the bright and cheerful décor will stimulate creativity and productivity in equal amounts.

Dinner/Cocktail party

This New York-style heritage building loft is ideal for intimate gatherings, with its warm and dreamy atmosphere. The 14-foot ceilings and massive windows offer idyllic lighting, and the spacious patio means the party can spill outside (we love the idea of a family-style table, for dinner al fresco).

Pop-up Event

This distinctive Chinatown loft has plenty of personality – 100-year-old brick walls, 15-foot ceilings – but is enough of a blank slate that you can put your own stamp on things. Whether you’re hosting a one-night art show or a three-week retail pop-up, the location is a flexible backdrop that gives you a hint of drama without stealing the show.
