A luxury condominium development designed by Ole Scheeren is taking shape in Vancouver, the architect’s first North American residential building and the only one in the world where he designed both interiors and exteriors.

Developed by Bosa Properties, in partnership with Kingswood Properties, the project was first unveiled in 2015 before being approved by city council in 2018. Construction is expected to begin in 2022.

The tower, named Fifteen Fifteen, will be located in the Coal Harbor district of Vancouver. It will measure 42 storeys and take on a distinctive shape, with many stacked horizontal volumes. The design is based on the idea of ​​what Scheeren describes as ‘three-dimensional life’, a typology that injects horizontality into the life of skyscrapers in order to reconnect architecture with the natural and urban environment. .

“Its distinctive silhouette stems from the idea of ​​activation,” Scheeren said. “Fifteen Fifteen is about connectivity – connecting people to each other and their surroundings – and offers an interactive way of life. “

This vision is best seen through its 18 cantilever glazed observation residences. Protruding from the tower, they create the illusion of floating above the city, which is made more spectacular by Vancouver’s striking natural environment.

Fifteen Fifteen will consist of 202 residences divided into 69 floor plans for studios, one, two and three bedroom homes. Among the condo’s luxury amenities will be a Convenience Lounge spanning the 29th and 30th floors, with a 270-degree view of the city. The tower will also incorporate sustainable features, such as energy efficient systems, environmentally friendly materials and attention to the quality of the indoor environment, which includes advanced filtration systems.

Pre-sales for Fifteen Fifteen began this month, with estimated initial occupancy of the three-dimensional tower slated for 2027.
