This is a true artist's loft built from a raw and unfinished loft space in 1998. Hide Ebina first developed the space into his ceramics studio, later turning it into his home. As such, there is a unique and exciting interior design to this live/ work zoned 1100+ square foot and high volume loft.
The loft is built of cedar and steel, with perforated steel panels embedded into the floor. This flows a pleasing light from the living space below. Considered into this design is the way in which the light creates an animated halo when interacting with this surface. It's this kind of consideration and attention to detail that sets this space apart. You'll see it in the solid wood staircase and steelwork and it's also evident in the built-ins and material choices.
The space is very large with huge volume. Very high ceilings contain two levels of space, currently open plan yet easily converted to two or more bedrooms. Concrete construction is solid and private, softened by the interior design of cedar and other warm materials.
South facing windows pour light into this loft. A very large south facing deck extends directly off the main living area with a pleasant urban outlook. Currently, a storage shed sits on the deck providing good context of the deck's overall size. Please refer to the photos...
Features include a fully serviced kitchen with a pony wall opening into the dining area. There is also en-suite laundry tucked into one of the many clever storage built-ins. A full bathroom is located off the entrance area.
The neighbourhood has experienced explosive growth over the last two years. The construction of two Canada line stations within a few blocks in addition to many new housing and retail developments has transformed the Cambie and Broadway area into an exciting extension of the downtown core. Check the walkscore on this location and it's easy to see its new identity.
Live/ work zoning, an exciting design by an established Vancouver artist, excellent amenities, big outdoor space, and good quality, low-maintenance construction makes this true artist's loft a great option in an excellent location.
