Context

As part of the City Planning effort to revitalize 5.5 acres in Downtown Vancouver, a combination of mixed-use housing, office, and adaptive reuse projects were envisioned alongside this project. The plan was to convert this underutilized industrial area into a vibrant jobs and housing area, with Hurley Development taking the lead on development.

With this plan in mind, LSW designed Hurley Development’s new waterfront-facing office condominium in Downtown Vancouver. This project was an exciting opportunity for our architecture and interior design teams to work side-by-side on a highly recognizable local building close to our own headquarters. Located near the Interstate Bridge, this five-story complex offers a chic working environment with easy access to the nearby waterfront development and Downtown. Each of the building’s five levels has roughly 7,000 square feet, and is served by two egress stairs, an elevator and an exterior balcony. The bottom floor is reserved for parking.

Hurley Office Space

LSW’s Interior Studio completed the interior design and space plan for the building’s fourth floor. This large, open floor plan maximizes its position with plenty of natural light and glass, taking full advantage of its views. The overall effect is one that highlights a deep connection to the city, the region, and to Hurley’s mission: To Bring Life

Divided into two parts, the layout consists of a semi-public gathering/meeting space with an added bar area to boot, along with a fireplace and several seating options on one side. A custom wood art installation, produced by a local tattoo artist, adds texture and pops of color, contrasting with the client’s personal taxidermy above the fireplace. The personality of the two tenants that share the floor, Hurley and Talents Construction, were combined to create an environment that showcases their unique strengths in harmony.

The team was thrilled to work with a dedicated local developer like Ryan Hurley, whose love for this region and company mission to “Bring Life” connects naturally with Pacific Northwest elements: greenery, views of the river, natural textures, and custom graphics. There’s also great synergy between Hurley and Talents Construction, which made creating a shared experience for both companies feel very organic and complementary.
