PART II: UNDER CONSTRUCTION
To finally decide on a place close to home and in the city of Vancouver is seriously a blessing. After years on 47th Ave, WSDMCLUB made Strathcona home. It was only right that our homies at Higher Works designed the space. They had blessed me with a customized coffee table that it still in my shop today. Get a read of who they are.
HOW DID YOU FIRST GET WITH HIGHER WORKS?
I actually grew up with everyone on the Higher Works team. They were individuals that had a dream of their own and they came together and eventually made it happen. When Ken and Mike first started, I asked them to make me their first custom piece of furniture.
WAS THERE ANYTHING IN PARTICULAR YOU WERE LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING/CREATING WITH THESE GUYS YOU GREW UP WITH?
We were just excited to collaborate and create custom pieces -- and seeing those ideas come to life on wood... But I was even more excited to work with the homies.
WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE PLANS WITH HIGHER WORKS, IF ANY?
No future plans, but the fact that they're people we grew up with, when something comes up there will always be a call from either of us. Higher Works will always be a part of WSDMCLUB’s projects.
Fast forward to now, we got a shop that is thoughtfully designed with pieces that are interchangeable to adapt to the changing workspace. Higher Works continues to push the envelope of design and have already been a part of small to large scale projects across the city. From the boys at WSDMCLUB, thank you to Mike, Ken, Raph, Jem, and the whole Higher Works organization for blessing us with pieces that will forever be tattooed within the origins of our shop.
