Retail, Events, Meetings, Production


As seen in Western Living Magazine, Montecristo Magazine and Gray Magazine. A heritage loft space in Gastown, with ensuite laundry and full kitchen. Street-level, corner unit with lots of windows and natural light. Concrete floors, exposed beams, 16' ceilings, painted brick wall and huge heritage windows make for a great vibe. Fully furnished by Vancouver-based furniture designer/maker, Kate Duncan.

Perfect for retail, pop-ups, gallery exhibits, corporate meetings, photo shoots or private events.

Not perfect for big messy parties. Cocktail events, small dinner parties, and corporate soirees are a-OK, but not big messy parties. It's in a residential building and large noisy parties for 60 or more won't go over well with the residents of the building.

There's also a queen size bed upstairs and full bathroom... If you're from outta town you can host an event AND crash in the bed upstairs too!

Reach out if you've got questions or want to set up a viewing.

Kate's space was amazing for a photoshoot. Very light and airy. I only wish we could have taken more advantage of her beautiful furniture. Kate was an amazing host.


June 2017

Kate was great, super helpful and easy going. The space worked great for us!

The best loft in town! Seriously cool space to have a pop-up, or to stay at while visiting Van 馃憣馃徏

Kate is incredible, not only is she a fantastic human but her place is absolutely made for great use for offsite meetings- which is what I used it for. We had 12 people in one room, but we never felt crowded thanks to comfortable seating, high ceilings, and incoming natural light. Not to mention a state of the art kitchen to feed our crew. I would definitely without question recommend her space for your next offsite meeting, event, pop-up or even photoshoot!


April 2017

This space is fantastic and perfect for what we needed. Kate was super easy to coordinate with and made the process simple.

Kate鈥檚 space is nothing short of fantastic, and Kate herself is fun and easy to work with. Our breakfast mingling and panel discussion fit very well into the space, with 30 seats in the front and the refreshments in the back of the unit. As always, the party happens in the kitchen, so plan your space accordingly! One recommendation would be to bring a portable coat rack or something similar if you would prefer your guests to hang their coats as they enter rather than do so at the back of the venue. Acoustics were great, and speakers were well heard even without microphones at the opposite end of the room. A successful partnership with Kate helped create a successful event, and I would definitely recommend the space to anyone looking to host an event in Gastown.


March 2017

This is our second event in Kate's space and I can't imagine doing an event anywhere else in Vancouver now. The space is beautiful, the location is perfect and Kate's a star.


March 2017

Kate was great to deal with and the space is perfect for a pop-up or meeting space. I highly recommend it.


February 2017

Kate was wonderful to work with. We would definitely have another event at this space in the future!


December 2016

Awesome venue. Kate is so easy to work with. We're so happy that we've reserved it again for another function.


December 2016

We used Kate's space for a media preview and the space worked out perfectly! The space is exactly as shown, and Kate is fantastic to work with; very professional and helpful. This was especially appreciated as we are from Toronto, so had a lot of questions about the area, amenities etc, so she really helped put our mind at ease. The one and only tiny downfall is that the space was pretty chilly, BUT we happened to be hosting our event on a unusually chilly day, so it was understandable. Totally recco this space to anyone looking to hold pop up shops/showrooms. Thanks, Kate!


November 2016

We received so many compliments about this beautiful space! Kate was accommodating, flexible, easy to communicate with and helped to ready the space exactly as we envisioned. It was a beautiful spot for our event. Thank you!

Kate's Response:

Thanks so much Zoe! It was such a pleasure working with you. Keep in touch...


September 2016

Both Kate and her space are great. Kate was quick and helpful with her communication, which made planning a breeze. The space is bright, open, and well located. We would definitely do another event here.


August 2016

Kate was a wonderful host, very accommodating with us for our pop up shop! The space is beautiful, with tall windows and natural light, we will definitely rent again.


July 2016

This was my first thisopenspace experience and it couldn't have been better. Kate was a gracious host, who was more then willing to help us get the most out of our rental. The space exceeded our expectations and created the perfect environment for our pop up sale. We would love to rent from Kate again and look forward to doing so in the future. Thanks Kate!


June 2016

Kate was a pleasure to work with and her space is beautiful! She let us use the furniture she designed which really made the space special. There was a bit of a renovation going on when we were there but that didn't disturb our event at all, it was all tidy and ticked away while we had an evening cocktail party. I would highly recommend this space to anyone!
