Cook Condo

Date: April, 2015

Location: Downtown Vancouver


The Cook condo renovation project goes to show that even the most basic condo layouts have plenty of opportunities.


Originally your average cramped condo design with a galley kitchen, we sought to incorporate plenty of built-in features and a more open layout.

Mechanical & Electrical

  • On demand hot water heating
  • Recessed & feature LED lighting throughout
  • Pre-wired audio surround sound system
  • Lighting control system
  • State-of-the-art built-in wine cooler
  • Entirely new stainless steel appliances

Interior Finishes

  • Custom cabinetry throughout
  • Granite & engineered stone counter tops
  • Engineered oak floors
  • Steam shower
  • Custom millwork
  • Italian marble backsplashes

Upgrading the finishings throughout the unit, adding built-in shelving, completely modernizing the bathrooms and removing one bank of cabinetry from the kitchen turned what originally felt like a cramped layout into a free-flowing living space.

An intimate living area, entirely re-floored with engineered oak, looks into the kitchen while still maintaining separation. The new appliances and peninsula bar make entertaining while cooking an absolute delight, and a cozy living room allows guests and residents to relax at the end of a busy day in downtown Vancouver. The new Cook condo is tasteful, modern, and effortlessly functional.
