“Given the word Arc as a starting point for this installation I chose to not focus on the shape of the curve itself, but instead to focus on what can happen within the arc”.
L A M P was created for professional designers to have an opportunity to re-imagine their talents in conceptual explorations and for the community to connect with architecture and design.

It’s been a busy past week getting ready for last night’s sold out Dinner By Design event.
The open ended brief was to come up with a ‘room’ to accommodate a dinner for ten. We decided to go the conceptual route of an all-white room, hence our “White Noise” concept.
“White Noise” represents a dining experience where all ambient distractions fade away, bringing the diners and meal into focus.
The recent trend of covering every surface with “found” objects in order to “curate” a room has diminished the importance of the diner. “White Noise” is a reaction to that trend. Objects and table settings have been visually minimalized and conversations “cut up” and reassembled to form abstracted meanings.
Now, more than ever, there is a growing visual distraction in restaurant design where the patron has become secondary to the room concept. Add to this the constant “reportage” of the meal via social media, and the art of dinner conversation is vanishing.
As designers, and restaurant owners, we constantly remind ourselves that no matter how beautiful a room design may be, the dining experience is ultimately about the meal and human interaction.
Thanks to the event organizers The Social Concierge, and to the amazing guests who joined us at our table.

Our West 9th Residence is featured on the Modern Home Tours of Vancouver this Saturday. OK, we know it’s a little late notice, as it’s on today, but If you’re in Vancouver, drop by and say Hi. $40 for the full tour, or $10 to check out a single home.

Hands went up quickly in the office when our latest project walked through the door.
These design sketches show the soon-to-be “Temper Chocolate & Pastry” in West Vancouver. Utilizing vertical grain fir and Carrara marble, this 1,200 sq.ft. retail space is set to open later this year.
We’ll continue to update as construction begins as both the interiors and branding develop.
