TheMACNABS have recently come together with all their handy friends and family to create what they are calling a true Vintage Modern double height loft in Vancouver’s industrial loft land. The Mecca loft building is located in Mt Pleasant’s up and coming Brewery Creek district. This 1350 sq/ft loft is one of the rare ones which includes; 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a roof top patio, a secret door to a hidden office, and a sweet view of Grouse Mountain. Having been pregnant with their first, Katie and Jordan Macnab, had to think about the future when designing the functionality of the space without losing any cool factor.

That being said, they definitely still wanted to keep it industrial and lofty and worry about baby proofing later. They a ton of reclaimed barn board they located at Western Reclaimed wood corp for the feature wall, window trim, various light fixtures, baby barn door, side table and the large dining table. They employed industrial light fixtures from Ikea, living green wall by GreenStems, couch by Van Gogh. The floor is original polished concrete from 1995, when the building was built for artist live/work buyers.

The color scheme is simply white on gray and warmed up with the reclaimed barn board. The Master bedroom is situated in the upper loft and is open towards the main level, as are most Vancouver lofts. The nook was designed to set the bed into the wall and showcase the art piece (which was a wedding gift ) from Linzy Arnott. [Information provided via e-mail by TheMACNABS; Photography: Dan Stone]
