Vancouver’s Coolest Bachelor Pads

We sneak a peek inside the homes of Vancouver's best designed bachelor suites. Hover over the images for details!

THE JET-SETTER

This high-flying suite was sold as a one-bedroom, but its new owner quickly converted it into a bachelor. (“It was always intended to be a single room by the architect,” he says.) Constant global travels left him looking for a crash pad that kept things simple. The owner’s globe-trotting is directed by the tides of the art world, the fruits of which dominate his home—the result is a collection on these gallery-white walls that is superb and enviable.

THE CRAFTSMAN

Christian Woo, one of the city’s top new furniture makers, is known for his clean lines, expressed in gorgeous American black walnut benches, tables and beds. But he’s also been outfitting entire homes with smart millwork—from wall-sized installations to in-drawer cutlery dividers. His own home, a bachelor just off Main Street, offers spacious living and floods of light. Having his whole home in a single volume also made things easy when it came to that full-scale renovation.

THE IDEA MAN

Josh Dunford (seen here with the writer Anne Casselman) is founder of the design agency Burnkit, which produces interactive media for leading brands like MicrosoftLululemon and Bing Thom Architects. “It’s influenced my sense of things, for sure. Living simply is important to me, but with quality in terms of design.” His Alexander Street offices are a short walk from this Paris Block home, which was designed by Kelly Reynolds and Chad Falkenberg of Falken Reynolds Interiorswl
