Vancouver Club - 1914
Vancouver Club - 1914
915 West Hastings, Vancouver, BC. Statement of Significance Description of Historic Place: The Vancouver Club is a sophisticated five-storey building, notable for its symmetrical five-bay, brick and terra cotta front facade, with central entrance and projecting balcony. Displaying Classical Revival ornamentation, it is an imposing presence mid-block on the north side of West Hastings Street, between Burrard and Hornby Streets. The rear of the club faces north to the harbour. Heritage Value: The heritage value of the Vancouver Club lies in its historical, associative, and architectural significance. The Vancouver Club is valuable for its unique role in the history of the city as one of the primary social organizations for many of the city's and the province’s most prominent citizens, including leaders in business and political affairs. This building recalls this unique social activity from 1914, when the club moved to this building from its previous clubhouse, located on the lot immediately to the east. The Vancouver Club survives as one of the few private clubs left in Vancouver. The current Vancouver Club, opened on January 1, 1914, is one of the city's most sophisticated examples of Edwardian era architecture, displaying a high quality of workmanship and a significant degree of architectural integrity. Referencing its role as a home away from home for members, the club was built to resemble a substantial British townhouse. The club was inspired by seventeenth and eighteenth century English classicism - architecture influenced by the practices of the Italian Renaissance - and displays Palladian style ornamental motifs. Many of the famous gentlemen's clubs in London were similarly styled, and the style and appearance of the Vancouver Club reflects the British origins of most of its early members. When completed, the club was described as an example of ‘modern Renaissance’ design, due to its symmetrical appearance, harmonious proportions, Palladian-style attic type windows and ornamentation in the classical manner. The interior of the club displays handsome and dignified design. Rooms throughout feature elements such as vaulted ceilings, elaborate plasterwork, beautiful panelling and other fine materials such as terrazzo and marble. Principal rooms such as the Grand Ballroom (former Dining Room) are substantial in size, highly finished, and represent some of Vancouver’s greatest surviving early interior spaces. This successful architectural achievement was the work of the firm of Sharp and Thompson, one of Vancouver’s most prolific and accomplished architectural partnerships. Shortly after winning the commission for the Vancouver Club, the firm won their most famous commission, the competition for the new University of British Columbia. One of the key talents of Sharp and Thompson was their ability to design in traditional styles but still remain in the forefront of advanced technology. Such was the case with the Vancouver Club, featuring a historical facade on an early example of a modern, reinforced concrete superstructure. Belying its traditional appearance, the club was provided with up-to-date ventilation, heating and electrical systems and engineered with all modern conveniences in the way of kitchens, refrigeration, central vacuum, electric lifts and dumbwaiters.

Kimchi Attempt #2
I decided to try a variance on my kimchi making. This one uses 1/2 a red cabbage, six carrots, some shaved ginger, crushed garlic, onion top, red pepper flakes and two types of whey. These are also vacuum sealed. I am going to try and age them for a week before refrigeration.
