Cadence Field Trip: Vancouver

Vancouver, the city: This city is fantastic! It’s great to see how density is embraced and created in a sensitive and architecturally interesting way.  Residential towers are situated right down by the waterfront, along with numerous parks, cycling and pedestrian paths.  Apartment buildings are typically between 7-14 stories with outdoor terraces and rooftop landscaping.  Cute little shops and restaurants everywhere. The most bike-friendly city that we’ve ever experienced. Real designated bike lanes throughout the city, with planters between the bike lanes and cars…and separate from pedestrians!

Vancouver Showrooms:  We had a great time exploring some of the many showrooms around the city.  Better than candy shops! Beautiful curated selection @provide_home! It’s amazing -- so perfect for the lover of the simple modern aesthetic who has some extra spending money. @informinteriors has an immense showroom in Gastown – you could spends hours in there! Another fun showroom was @avenueroadfurniture Exquisite collection of high quality pieces & a fun space to check out also for its interior detailing. Also a favorite in Gastown called @Out & About, a small Japanese homewares shop featuring curated must-have objects.
