The Niagara Market building in Victoria, BC has been amazingly transformed!
When Seamus McKeating & Jennifer Gunter bought the building a little over a year ago it needed an overhaul. We tossed around ideas on how to refresh the building within the existing spaces, while keeping the community spirit that this market has been bringing to the James Bay area in Victoria for over a century.
One of the challenges included making an access to the apartments upstairs that didn’t infringe on the store space. A deck on the 2nd floor with access through the private yard was created. This then created a fantastic space for a patio on the side of the building, which is quickly becoming a social hub for the neighbourhood.
This heritage project has been taken to a new level with the talented new owners, which you can read about in this nice piece the Times Colonist printed recently. Read it here.
