Vintage Modern Loft by The Macnabs :
theMACNABS have recently come together with all their handy friends & 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.
Using a ton of reclaimed barn board they located at Western Reclaimed wood corp which was used for the feature wall, window trim, various light fixtures, baby barn door, side table and the big ass dining table. Industrial light fixtures from Ikea, living green wall by GreenStems, couch by Van Gogh, and floor is original polished concrete from 1995 when the building was built for artist live/work buyers. Glass provided by Quest Glass Furniture hook-up from Port + Quarter.
The kitchen cabinets are a matte gray woodgrain with pure white Quartz countertops from Canadian Countertops. Backsplash is a simple flat white subway tile. All appliances are KitchenAid.
The Master bedroom is situated in the upper loft and is open to below, 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. Electrical = Ross Morrison & Hall Electric.
The baby barn was positioned beside the master loft to keep baby Gray close but not too close. The barn door track was sourced through the states at Rustica Hardware.
The baby barn is a cozy little room following the same colour scheme as the rest of the loft featuring a custom hand painted mural by Grandma Judy.
Another dream come true feature is Jordan’s creation of a hidden door made of reclaimed wood which leads into his secret man room office. Sorry no pictures allowed, haha 🙂 The office also includes a hidden murphy bed for drunk guests and grandmas.
