Located in the beautiful shoreline district of Dunderave, this mixed use development on Marine Drive, West Vancouver, creates 40 apartments, as well as retail and office accommodation, and below grade parking and extensive landscaping.
The architecture is rooted in its Dunderave location and climate, responding to the amazing ocean views, and constructed from the same limestone seam that sits below the site. The highly articulated and sculptural form optimises the openness of the architecture, and is configured to shade the facade during summer months. Along Marine Drive itself, new shops, restaurants and widened sidewalks, greatly improve the pedestrian experience.
Within the site two highly landscaped gardens provide new public amenities - and connect Marine Drive to Dunderave Lane both visually and physically.
The design is engineered utilising passive house design principles, significantly reducing mechanical plant requirements and in use running costs.
