The North Vancouver Museum is a vital addition in the larger redevelopment of the Lower Lonsdale Cultural District. It will be prominently located adjacent Carrie Cates Mews and Esplanade Ave, inviting the public in to discover the rich ecological and cultural heritage of North Vancouver. Urban Arts Architecture is completing a design that reflects the identity of North Vancouver through the use of natural materials and clean, modern detailing providing a fitting home for the important exhibits and artifact to be displayed therein. The museum features both Permanent and Temporary Galleries in addition to a Flex Space and Multi-Purpose Room that will provide public, bookable spaces for a broad range of events. The Lobby has been designed as a ‘public living room’ featuring an original commissioned cedar carving by local First Nations Artist, Wade Baker in addition to the refurbished electric street car that operated nearby in the early decades of the 1900s. The Project also includes the new Administrative Offices for the Museum and Archives. The Museum will be open to the public in 2019.
