Something old mixed with fresh ideas and modern design
Riko and Yoshi have been together for 4 years and got married in 2020. Since their wedding, they have been living together in a 36 square-metre studio in Vancouver. "We have considered all options to find a bigger home," explains Yoshi. From pre-sales of future building development projects to moving to the suburbs. "But the projects in the area were either sold out, too small or out of our price range. Moving further to the outskirts of Vancouver was out of the question due to the commute to work," adds Riko. So the only option was to renovate an older apartment. "We knew that while this meant more space for our home, it also meant more flexibility in our ideas and a lot of work on our part."
