KRA was retained by Earls Kitchen + Bar to collaborate on the expansion of their existing office space. The Earls head offices are located at 425 Carrall Street – an important heritage building in the fabric of Vancouver’s Gastown neighbourhood.
KRA and the Earls internal design team collaborated to create a bright and open workspace that added 3,000 square feet to the existing office. It was important to maintain fluidity between the existing Earls office and the new workspace, so design features were carried through from the existing office area into the new office area. An industrial character was provided in the new office; many of the original building features were cleaned up and left exposed, while large existing heritage windows were maintained to maximize natural light in a healthy and productive work space.
The space features a new meeting room, phone booth, private office, storage areas, as well as an efficient layout of open plan working space that encourages collaboration between teams.
