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.

This is first and foremost a studio: a place for collaborating and creating.  It is intended to inspire... to elevate conversations about the intersection of life and design.

We’ve grown at such a pace that establishing another studio for our team was a natural progression, but we had to do it the right way - boldly yet thoughtfully. Every aspect of the Vancouver studio is a reflection of that.

Nothing gives a space attitude like art, and with pieces by notable Vancouver artists Ben Skinner and Anthony Redpath, our studio got a healthy dose of cool.
