The Keefer Awarded The Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia Award in Architecture

135 Keefer St., recently named one of 2010's best new hotels by Condé Nast Publications, has been awarded a Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia Award in Architecture and is featured in the July issue of Azure Magazine.

It’s an intelligent re-use of space. It’s unassuming and really engaging.

Clever and provocative... the lack of detail is compelling. The blending of old and new is very nice.

There’s a very limited amount of space because its very narrow... it has a European scale in that sense. It’s amazing what they have been able to do with it. It’s a historical building but also modern in the integration of the elements. This shows what can be done as a alternative to knocking down buildings
