Canadian architectural studio Omer Arbel made the reconstruction of the historical building of the National Historical Museum in Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada).
The project 46 Water Street Heritage Building was the restoration of a historic building in Gastown – Vancouver’s historic district. After the reconstruction, the authors of the project created a spacious living loft.
New residential space is organized around an open courtyard and uses the legacy of a historic building as textured brick walls and wood with prints of the time, during which it served.
All other elements are integrated into the fabric of an old home, using the impressive power of contrast times, materials and styles.
The work of the authors of the project can be found on the official website of the architectural studio, headquartered in Vancouver: http://www.omerarbel.com/
