We have moved into our new home in Mount Pleasant. Come Say Hi!


Ethọ́s Lab is housed inside a new building owned by the City of Vancouver and operated by 221A Artist Housing Society in collaboration with the Community Land Trust. In addition to a dedicated 1,000-sq.-ft. space, Ethọ́s Lab has shared access to a 2,700-sq.-ft. production facility.

The space features a mix of organic, sustainable materials and digital elements, and makes use of the site’s natural light. Local firm Tectonic Architecture, which prioritizes community-based work, led design discussions with members — also known as Ethósians — to ensure their vision was incorporated into the space. Comic artist and illustrator Jazz Gordon-Gillquist and Chase Gray (who recently designed the Vancouver Canucks’ First Nations Night warmup jersey) painted an original mural in collaboration with curator Krystal Paraboo. Microsoft, Sony, and Heritage Office Furnishings equipped and furnished the space.

This will be a hub for the broader community, a place for our members and their families to gather and collaborate. Interested in seeing the space and what we have to offer? Book a tour and meet with our community manager.
