In 2017, after 14 years in Western Canada Building at 416 W Pender St., Integra Architecture Inc. moved to a new location in Granville Square Plaza, a waterfront high-rise with stunning North Shore views. Completed in 1973, the building is centrally located right above Waterfront Station and the Canadian Pacific Railway. At 142 m or 30 storeys high, it remains one of tallest buildings in Vancouver.
Our new space on the 23rd floor, was designed and renovated to create a spacious open-concept floor plan that invites communication and maximizes access to the more-than-180 degree views of the waterfront to the north and east. The North Shore Mountains provide an interesting and ever-changing backdrop for the office.
The renovation with contemporary interior aesthetic presented different challenges comparing to our first relocation in 2003, from North Vancouver to downtown Vancouver’s Western Canada Building. At the time, the heritage renovation sought to revitalize and retain as many of the original historical elements of the building as possible, while adapting the space to building code standards and its function as an architecture office. Building’s history and original elements including exposed brickwork and wood beams created for many years an ideal space for clients and architects.
We welcome clients – old and new – to come enjoy the views with us at 2330-200 Granville Street.
