Edgar’s new space to bring the outdoors inside in Vancouver, Canada by Dialog Design

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: v2com

In January 2016, DIALOG’s Vancouver interior design team completed a stunning new commercial office space for up-and-coming company Edgar Development in the MNP Tower in Vancouver, Canada. Inspired from a simple photograph of a ‘mountainscape’, DIALOG designed Edgar’s 4,285 sq. ft. office to reflect a crisp, clean, white mountain of ice to bring the outdoors in and create a grounded space for employees to flourish.

Milner Modern Residence in Vancouver, Canada by Comelite Architecture & Structure

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

Article source: Comelite Architecture & Structure

In Canada, by grasping a modern home renovation, this is the new outcome of a usual quiet family house. With a garage ducked into the lowest ground; what stood before on its topper level, being seen at front sight was a one-floor building.

Now though after removing meters of soil that blocked our entrance design, the residence can make full use of their fresh inserted third floor by taking its new implemented stairs. There is a whole pitch wide enough to fit an open kitchen leading into the dining area as well as a living room next door. Just how the client has asked for and couldn’t believe how we managed it.

Alberni, large-scale residential tower in Vancouver, Canada by Kengo Kuma and Associates

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Article source: v2com

“The building should not be an isolated object. Buildings should be part of the city, part of the environment. I believe that is the goal of architecture in the 21st century.” ~ Kengo Kuma

In Vancouver to discuss his work, Japan’s leading architect, Kengo Kuma, personally revealed plans for his first North American, large-scale residential tower – Alberni by Kuma – proposed for the globally renowned city on Canada’s westcoast. Westbank and Peterson, Canada’s premier developers of luxury, mixed-use projects, have engaged Kengo Kuma, and his firm Kengo Kuma and Associates (KKAA) to design the 43-storey tower near the entrance to Vancouver’s famed Stanley Park. The proposed tower is part of a small collective of internationally influenced designs in the city, under the direction of Westbank and Peterson.

Congregation Beth Israel in Vancouver, Canada by Acton Ostry Architects Inc.

Friday, April 15th, 2016

Article source: Acton Ostry Architects Inc.

Since 1948, Congregation Beth Israel has been located in Vancouver on Oak Street, a busy arterial corridor and historical focal point for various congregations and institutions. No longer able to meet the needs of the congregation, the facility has been extensively renovated and expanded. The existing synagogue has been retained and re-purposed for social and educational activities to provide a buffer between Oak Street and a new house of worship.

8X Tower in Vancouver, Canada by GBL Architects

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Article source: GBL Architects

The site is located at the western corner of Richards and Helmcken Street in downtown Vancouver’s Yaletown neighborhood – positioned at the convergence of three surrounding contextual zones. EMERY BARNES PARK flanks the western edge of the site, providing a large public green space. The URBAN GRID of Helmcken and Richards streets front the southern and eastern edges of the site, distinguished by the neighboring eight storey heritage Brookland Court. On a larger scale, the surrounding YALETOWN SKYLINE provides a variety of architectural styles and residential tower expressions. Establishing a building form and character that appropriately responds to all three of these unique contexts is the foundation of the proposed tower’s conceptual design.

Osteria Savio Volpe in Vancouver, BC , Canada by S T E . M A R I E ART + DESIGN

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Article source: S T E . M A R I E  ART + DESIGN 

The restaurant is a synthesis of what we call Italian Farmhouse Modern. The design was strongly inspired by three icons of Italian design: Carlo Mollino, Bruno Munari, and Enzo Mari. The result is a balance of simplicity, drama, and irreverence. The finishes are rooted in an earthy quality much like most roadside Osteria’s or country Trattorias found throughout Italy. In that same vein, the food, wine, products, herbs, and preserves are given as much focus as the paintings on the walls. An ongoing interplay between assertive and simple, elemental and modernist is a mainstay of Italian culture. We tried to capture that quintessential Italian juxtaposition by running the theme of humble vs pretty throughout the design. The mix of sconces with fabric lampshades and opaline glass highlight the apposing influence of modernist and “nonna” style in our lighting design. A similar exchange can be seen in the pleated oak walls that act as a modest rhythmic backdrop from which the mix of sartorial banquet seating stansout.As a nod to a simpler time, we keep a courtesy phone at the ready for those who require a lift home after dinner and packing away a Demi John of wine with friends and family.

At the heart of the University of British Columbia Point Grey campus, two wings of the aging Biological Sciences complex have been completely transformed and renewed through an innovative approach taken by the owner, architect, consultants and contractor that saw the South Wing, which dates from 1957, and the West Wing which dates from 1970 and faces Main Mall, being fast-tracked through design and double-shift construction in only 19 months to meet an extremely aggressive federal stimulus funding deadline.
