The Aviary is Vancouver's first coworking studio dedicated to supporting independent architects, designers, and creatives. Located in the heart of Vancouver's Fraserhood District, we are purposely located at street level with large storefront windows in order to encourage the relationship between what designers do and what the public thinks we do.

Who are we?
Andrea McLean and Stella Boyland, we are the cofounders of The Aviary. We met in architecture school in 2003 and share a common dream of working in a collaborative environment that fosters critical creative thinking and support. Andrea also holds a degree in Interior Design, and Stella a degree in Engineering. Together we manage the space, and operate our own respective design practices, while enjoying the company of other engaging creatives at The Aviary.

When did The Aviary open?
We opened our doors in January 2016
