Jennifer Koper’s Real Estate Lust List: A Vancouver Loft

I’m always intrigued by small spaces and the tricks needed to make them function. I also love historic details that are left in their original state, which makes this converted heritage building studio apartment a hot property find.

Built in 1911 for commercial purposes, the property was later converted into apartment units in the mid-‘90s. This particular suite has undergone further renovations in recent years, bringing the finishes up to date. What remains are the wooden beams, ten foot ceilings, and brick walls that give the space a ton of character.

Not only is the space fantastic, the location is amazing. Vancouver consistently makes the top 5 lists of most livable cities worldwide and this unit is located in the heart of it all – a sweet spot between the downtown core and the historical Gastown area. It’s close to shops, cafes and an extra bonus: it’s right down the street from one of H&H’s favorite design stores, Provide Home.
