1151 W Georgia Street

1151 W Georgia Street

1151 West Georgia is located on Vancouver’s Georgia Street in the Central Business District. The elegant, slim, triangular, 167-meter tower rotates 45 degrees between its base and its roof.

Situated on Vancouver’s primary ceremonial street, the proposed tower is conceived as a singular pure form rising from the ground plane to the parapet in a graceful spiral. The massing results from the rotation of a constant truncated triangular floor plate to create a powerful iconic form for this tall building. A three-storey podium element engages the tower on the east side responding to the similarly scaled Terasen Building podium. The large public open space fronting Georgia Street offers a sunny place for congregating and gives access to the mid-block connectors to the north.

The project is in collaboration with dys architecture and in association with Arthur Erickson.

1166 Alberni

1166 Alberni

The Carmana development contains a mix of uses; rental and market residential condominiums, office and retail, all tightly incorporated into a dense urban site. As such, the ground level expansion of the office tower to include additional retail along Alberni Street had to respond to a number of constraints in terms of loading, vertical circulation, access and building services in order to achieve a design that expressed and supported all uses while maintaining an overall cohesiveness.  
Similar materials and vocabulary were used to rejuvenate the retail expression along Alberni Street. The retail pavilion at the Bute / Alberni corner provides punctuation to the end of the Carmana development and completes the retail experience along Alberni and up Bute towards Robson Street.

Vancouver Club

Vancouver Club

In 1992, the Vancouver Club decided to renovate the existing east and west elevations of their Class “A” heritage building in concert with the establishment of an adjacent city park over a parking garage. The renovation also included an extension to the north consisting of an outdoor terrace with additional Club facilities and 36 parking stalls below.  
Castings and mouldings and relief from the existing façade were used to construct fibreglass replicas, in conjunction with brick and E.I.F.S. to finish what was originally a common wall to the east and unfinished facades to the north and west. This project was awarded the 1995 City of Vancouver Heritage Award of Honour.
