North Vancouver City Hall

Mid-century modern buildings

The North Vancouver City Hall is a great example of how to save a vintage building through restoration, renovation and repurposing while also using recycled and natural elements to help keep the structure sustainable.

In 2013, a vacant library next to the 1970s City Hall heritage building was repurposed as staff offices and meeting space while a unique bridging atrium structure was built to seamlessly connect the two.

The project, which was led by architect Michael Green of McFarlane, Green, Biggar Architecture + Design at the time, was Awarded the Governor General’s Award for Architectural excellence in 2014.
