776 Kingsway is located in the Kensington-Cedar Cottage neighborhood. The original building was completed in the late 1940s, designed by architect Swinburne A. Kayll, and reminiscent of the Art Deco/Modern style.

The goal of the project was to revitalize and modernize the existing form, including the architectural style and material selection. The sensitive rehabilitation retained the original structure and cladding where possible. The result is an iconic building that is both reflective of a bygone era of architecture in Vancouver and a modern gem in the community.

The project’s partnership between KRA and Bon Constructors allowed for a great deal of flexibility, collaboration and integration during both design and construction.
