Amanat Architects office was completed in 2009, and designed by the company for their own use when they were called ARC International. The dramatically contemporary design is a good example of a small-scale infill that still stands out from the crowd. It’s located just off Granville Street, a couple of blocks north of West Broadway.
Unlike many Vancouver architects, Amanat have designed more buildings outside the city than you can find in Vancouver, including several towers for Vancouver-based developers in San Diego. In classic Vancouver style this isn’t just an office; it’s mixed use with a residential component. And what was there before? Well, for at least a decade, a surface parking lot.
