After an incredible return to in-person WL Design Talks in June, we’re thrilled to announce our next talk in the series: Smart Space Planning on February 1 at Resource Furniture.

Our WL Design Talks series brings together designers and architects to network, take in great discussion from top design pros—and grab a glass of wine, too.

And for our next in the series, we’re digging into Smart Space Planning. From designing clever storage solutions to creating a comfortable flow in a room, smart space planning is about more than just small space design. Designers Annaliesse Kelly and Andrea Rodman will be joining our editorial director Anicka Quin to share their own insights, along with a few great projects that exemplify great design.

The talks are eligible for one non-IDCEC hour of education credits for IDIBC members.

We’re looking forward to re-connecting with old friends and creating new design connections. The event is free: you just need to register to secure your spot!

The Details:

WL Design Talks at Resource Furniture, 124 West Hastings Street, Vancouver
Wednesday, February 1, 2022
