Twelve West

Home to ultra-hip lounges, clubs and bars, Vancouver is a city known for its vibrant nightlife. For those seeking VIP luxury and entertainment, look no further than Twelve West – a sophisticated new venue illuminated by Troy Lighting.

The 7,000-square-foot nightclub possesses an eclectic yet intimate atmosphere epitomizing extravagance and style. The interior was designed in collaboration with Nigel Walker and Associates – the design team of Nigel Walker, Lorin Bordeville, and Jenny Huang – and the club owners, whose vision was to create an entertainment space that broke away from Vancouver’s traditional nightclub scene. The designers took inspiration from Vancouver lofts, West Coast design, and New York’s revitalized districts, as well as speakeasy venues and the historic elements present in the space’s architecture and the surrounding Granville Street Entertainment District.

Working with Littman Brands Contract, the design team chose Troy’s standard in-line fixtures because they fit the specific look and materials palette they wanted: period-relevant materials, reclaimed woods, masonry, and iron. Troy fixtures were used as the iron element, casting a warm glow with an effect similar to firelight. Troy’s Pike Place chandeliers and wall sconces were installed in the main lounge area, an intimate space with a warm living room feel. At the end of the main bar area, you can find Troy’s sparkling Byron chandelier suspended above a seating area with tufted leather chaises. Its faceted crystals peek out from inside a wrought iron armillary sphere – a traditional style fixture that fits perfectly into the modern environment. “The end goal was to loosen the expected boundaries of the club experience and once through the door, to be as comfortable as one’s living room,” said designer Lorin Bordeville. “We changed how, and in what order, a nightclub is experienced by club-goers.”
