Mount Pleasant, Vancouver, BC
A modern, urban landscape design was created for this condominium project located on Main Street in the vibrant neighbourhood of Mount Pleasant. The unique form of the building references the site’s “hillside” typology while the significant setback pays homage to South Main’s iconic single storey industrial streetscape. The oblique angle formed by the building with the podium creates lush and open amenity decks with views to downtown and the north shore mountains. A series of undulating “mounds” of green roof, pine and maple tree, built over voiding to create lightweight landscape features that provide an aesthetically pleasing “middle ground” to the mountain and city view beyond.
