Sold Out | Vancouver
Designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning London architecture firm Foster + Partners, Jameson House combines eight office levels and 26 stories of condominium residences on one of downtown Vancouver’s most important thoroughfares. Foster’s design for the 37-story tower, which cantilevers over two restored Art-Deco buildings, incorporates numerous sustainable features including natural ventilation, roof gardens irrigated by rainwater harvesting systems, chilled and heated apartment floors, and a mechanised valet parking system that reduces the number of parking levels and associated excavation, lighting, and ventilation requirements. Foster + Partners devised all of the residential interiors, which include Foster-designed kitchen and bathroom fittings.
Developed in response to the local climate, the environmental concept was guided by seasonal sun paths, prevailing winds, humidity levels, air temperatures and precipitation rates specific to Vancouver.
Jameson House is the first residential tower in the world with the Foster-designed modern, custom-built kitchen including illuminated backsplash and a cantilevered island countertop which may be lowered or raised for bar seating or dining seating.
