An iconic statement.

“A striking, distinctive building that is experimental yet elegant and unites architecture, individual and nature.” – Olson Kundig

In our current culture, we strive for individuality, to leave our mark, to stand out in a crowd. Wesgroup searched for an architect who could explore this yearning for originality within the context of a prominent Vancouver neighbourhood. Olson Kundig was a natural choice, and they have designed a form that’s far from ordinary.

Inset for air, light, & corner windows for every unit
Shift & match neighbourhood scale
Create covered outdoor spaces

W16 is carefully proportioned to optimize the building’s footprint and the functionality of every home. The design was first shaped with insets, producing corner windows for all homes, and allowing air and light to freely circulate and penetrate deeper into living spaces. The façade was then shifted to further lighten the mass of the form, matching the neighbourhood’s scale. This created covered balconies that appear as articulated boxes from the street and offer versatile use. The result: unique dimensions and enhanced livability.

A simple material palette responds to the timeless character of the neighbourhood. Bronze panels, sleek glass, and textured brick are assembled into an elegant notched façade. The brick masonry at street level grounds the geometry above and responds to the rhythm of the sidewalk.

A view this stunning deserves a space that’s equally spectacular.

It’s your own private oasis in the sky. An open-air roof deck in a prestigious urban setting. Practice your short game on the putting green, cozy up in the outdoor seating, entertain with the outdoor kitchen, or simply sit back and marvel at the awe-inspiring panoramic views of one of North America’s most beautiful cityscapes.
