Boneta Restaurant, Gastown
With a focus on sustainability, Vanglo designed and built the hugely successful restaurant Boneta (original location), created out of a dilapidated retail space situated on the corner of Cordova and Carrall Street.
Some of the innovation and creative ideas applied in this project included enlisting the help from local artisans, using their knowledge of the space. This proved quite valuable, helping us to uncover many of the buildings original character accents, hidden overtime behind various renovations. Re-appropriating items from liquidation sales was another cost saving approach.
Boneta won Vancouver Magazine's Best New Restaurant Design on a normally unrealistic budget of $89,000 against restaurants giants, one with an alleged budget of $6,000,000.
