Vancouver House - Creative and Retail Space
Vancouver House, is an award-winning architectural residential, retail, office, and creative space developed by Westbank Corporation and designed by Danish architects Bjarke Ingels Group. The unique structures are built at the entry point into downtown Vancouver. The residential tower, in its height and proximity to the creek, is uniquely situated with views to both the water and the mountains, granting visual access to the breadth of Vancouver's natural surroundings.
The design follows the concept of Vancouverism, with a slender residential tower rising from a mixed-use podium. A nine-story podium, along with three triangle-shaped complexes, will house rental apartments, 80,000ft² of creative/office space, 60,000ft² of retail space, as well as street restaurants and cafés.
As our Most challenging project of 2019, the unique project design made for a challenging installation. The sloping walls made the install difficult to couple the frames. The sloping roof made it impossible to use a mini crane for top stack panels, so a mobile crane needed to be placed between the building and Granville Street bridge decks. The tight footprint with groundworks, bridges, cranes, and buildings made access to work areas very difficult requiring and higher than average amount of planning and organization.
