Monte Clark Gallery is a new 4 500 square foot commercial art gallery located in the old Finning industrial complex in Vancouver, BC. The primary goal of this project was to rejuvenate the 1963 concrete block building, exposing the bones of the existing building and creating a modern gallery space.
In the east bay, a new mezzanine was constructed using reclaimed Douglas Fir from a nearby warehouse that was being demolished. A new folded steel stair provides access to the mezzanine and is a central feature of the new space.
Canandian Architect featured this project on the front page of the March 2014 issue. The designer of this project was awarded the Ronald J. Thom Award for Early Design Achievement in July 2014. The Monte Clark Gallery Renovation was recognized as a finalist in the cultural category of the 2015 Architizer A+ Awards.
