MCKINLEY BURKART'S VANCOUVER STUDIO
We are proud to unveil our new Vancouver office, located in vibrant Railtown. For our second studio, we eagerly explored the heart of the west coast and inserted this within the modernist shell of the building. The aesthetic of the building itself captured our attention immediately, with lofty ceilings, saw-tooth skylights, and incredible views out to the harbour. We loved how the warehouse-style windows framed a mosaic of colourful shipping containers, almost like an art piece itself. We whole-heartedly embraced the spirit of Vancouver through abstractions of driftwood and metaphoric elements of the sea and the coastline. We also took cues from our Calgary studio, bringing forward elements such as the monolithic stone desk and the domed lights, gold-leafed by hand.
