Recently BUILD LLC went on its annual forward to Vancouver BC and saw some new design work, thanks to some great recommendations by Gaile Guevara. Vancouver’s Gastown has often been compared to Pioneer Square here in Seattle. The only difference is that while Seattle’s Pioneer Square remains trapped in ye olde tourist nightmare by day, frat-party by night, Vancouver’s Gastown is evolving and making design-forward progress. Here are a few sophisticated, well designed spaces all within walking distance of each other; for a complete list you can check out TheModernList Vancouver.
