One of the first things you notice when you enter the Fraserhood’s The Aviary is the abundance of natural light. The combination of the storefront windows and the minimal design allows two separate working areas to be lit up flawlessly despite being divided by a partial wall running clear down the middle. Co-Founders Andrea McLean and Stella Cheung Boyland are practicing architects and designers with an eye for thoughtful design. Their deep understanding of balance and the importance of grounding a space is evident in both the spatial layout and the use of utility centric Herman Miller pieces, by way of the Sayl chairs, rolling pedestals, and Flute task lamps; an infinitely applicable meeting room table and benches, custom-made by Vancouver’s Lock and Mortice; and Eames side chairs arranged to allow for a variety of space for the members’ choosing. This new coworking studio for architects and designers is simplicity meets versatility.
