Canada’s Coolest Offices: Vancouver’s Top 5

The team at Adzuna has been hard at work over the last few months researching some of the coolest offices in all of Canada to share with you guys. After the great success of our previous post, the coolest offices in Toronto, we thought we’d take a jump across the country and over to the Pacific to bring you some of the best ones we found in Vancouver.

Now, now, don’t be too jealous though! Remember that most of these guys are hiring, and you can find their jobs on Adzuna!

Mozilla YVR

Where: Downtown Eastside
Why it’s cool: Great colour scheme, no corner offices and a real feeling of collaboration.  Designed by Hughes Condon Marler Architects, the office is built around its group areas, where people can meet up and write on coloured ‘white’ boards!

If you're looking for some quiet time, just step into your temporary office.

The green whiteboard.
Hey… there’s something wrong with this whiteboard! (it’s green)

Rennie Art Gallery + Offices

Where: Chinatown
Why it’s cool: The owner of the real estate marketing company that is housed here’d decided to put up their art gallery in the same space! Imagine being able to take a break and take in some amazing colours, or sit around a conference room surrounded by great art! These guys do…

Well, if the meeting is boring, just stare at the wall.

Hootsuite

Where: Mount Pleasant
Why it’s cool: The crown jewel of this set! Built in an old police station, it has bulletproof and over 33,000 sq. ft of space for their employees… The total cost of the renovation was over $2 million, and it has 47 TVs spread around the office displaying real-time HootFeeds.

Burnkit

Where: Downtown Eastside
Why it’s cool: Great concept, with some shipping containers around the room giving it an interesting look. Open spaces, some good design and a lot of light make these designer’s studio a great place to work in.

 

I wonder what they put in there...

iQmetrix

Where: Gastown
Why it’s cool: Well, it’s won the “Gold workplace award”! Using a very minimalist palette, they’ve built a lot of their office space around the concept of textures, which you can see in the front.

Nice view!
