Hycroft TowersVancouver, British Columbia
Created by combining two units in a classic 1950s modernist building in Vancouver, this 20’ x 80’ flat was designed for clients seeking a home better tailored to their more modest space needs after their children left home.
The gallery-like sensibility speaks to the owners’ passion for collecting modern art. The design embodies one of the magic tricks of modernist design: how to make clean modern space while all the storage and back-of-house elements “disappear.” To this end, much of the ingenuity went into what is not seen: art storage and general storage concealed through pivoting walls, more art storage built into unlikely places like under and behind beds; the study with its built-in Murphy bed is easily converted to a guest room.
