In 2003, Integra Architecture Inc. relocated its office from North Vancouver to downtown Vancouver’s Western Canada Building. The process of renovating the heritage building to suit our needs provided a unique challenge for Integra. The renovation sought to revitalize and retain as many of the original historical elements of the building as possible, while adapting the building to current building code standards and its new function as an architecture office.
Now an award-winning heritage renovation, Integra’s head office provides an ideal space for clients and architects alike. The contemporary interior aesthetic nods to the building’s history and location with exposed brickwork and original wood beams, while dark grey detailing and slick steel accents ground the space firmly in the present.
