Splitting time between New York and Vancouver, the owners of a 1,100-square-foot loft in the latter city’s Crosstown neighborhood needed room to work from home, and as ardent sports fans they also wanted space to host large game-day gatherings. To seamlessly bring together the two activities and coastal influences, the couple to do a complete renovation of this loft space. Interior design firm Falken Reynolds have recently completed the design of a this Vancouver loft.

To ensure meals could be prepared without missing any sports action, the kitchen was oriented towards the sitting room and TV, where extra stools and chairs can easily be pulled in to accommodate more guests. Multiple work areas were added—a new dining room (once a storage room and shower), seating at the kitchen island, desk in the bedroom and dining table on the 400-square-foot covered patio.

To emphasize the openness of the loft space, lighter elements were used such as metal Vitsœ shelving, thin stone countertops, and lighter furniture on legs to balance heavier forms. In the ensuite, the mid century inspired custom vanity has the same effect. There, rhomboid Tex floor tiles by Mutina and gleaming subway tiles add texture to the neutral palette. In the bedroom, natural linen drapery creates privacy and darkness come evening. Highlighting the 19-foot ceilings, a Bocci 28.16 fixture cascades from the ceiling above the island. There are touches of black throughout to provide substance and grounding, as well as balance the presence of the large TV.

Inspired by Brooklyn’s warehouse lofts, modern craftsman elements were combined with the richness of oiled walnut to give the space a distinctly American feel—a warm reference to the couple’s bicoastal lives.
