This full city-block site is a spectacular opportunity to engage in an urban-scale project in a rapidly emerging neighborhood. Directly across from one of the most prestigious shopping areas in the city, this Cambie Corridor project seeks a contemporary design vernacular for the area. A mid-rise block building, two duplex and two single villas form the parti for the project. Water gardens and courtyards reflect light and create privacy and scale. Units vary from two story penthouses to three storey villas with direct parking access. Materials are proposed as architectural concrete and glass. Stratigraphic architectural themes are explored with strong horizontals expressed throughout the project in combination with layering façade frame elements. The architectural façade frames are programmed to maximize passive shading. Distant views are breathtaking and private roof decks are fully appointed to take advantage of this amenity.
