Are you an Art Deco lover? Then you must visit the Marine Building in Downtown Vancouver. My favourite are the elevators - wonderful inlay wood work.

This building is breathtakingly BEAUTIFUL--thank goodness it remains standing. The windows, the elevators, the walls, it is hard for the eye to take it all in. I was on a tour with Vancouver Tour Guys and when Jessica showed me this building I could not believe how beautiful it is--each of the elevators is slightly different, the second floor walls are amazing. Took me several trips to Vancouver to learn of this building and I will be back!

An art déco beautiful building which contrasts with the others, all in glass. You can enter the building and admire the entrance. It´s worth to have some information before about its construction and history. It´s very interesting.

I arrived at the building after 5 p.m., so couldn't get in, but the outside has some lovely features. There is a lot of scaffolding in front of the building, but you can still see some of the smaller surrounds.

Wandered in here after seeing the carved marine motifs on the outside of the building. It was like going back in time. Definitely glad I ventured inside.
