Located across from public beaches, sound control and security were a priority. “It was important that we didn’t compromise comfort for aesthetics,” says Tony Giroux at Wesplan Building Design. “We wanted large openings to take advantage of the views and maximize natural light, but we also wanted our homeowners to be comfortable and safe.”

Join us on Friday, September 30th from 4 to 9 PM for an open house at our new showroom in Kelowna, BC: The Factory.

 

We're celebrating the opening of Kelowna's premier destination for building professionals and homeowners with a little wine, appetizers and mingling. Explore The Factory's two stories and discover building suppliers, designers and artists for your home or upcoming project.

 

 The Factory

 

The Factory is more than our showroom, it is a beautiful example of vision, design and community. Not long ago, 1302 St. Paul Street was an abandoned building with little hope of repair. Today, it is a contempory space that combines new technologies with architectural vision.
