Kengo Kuma unveils groundbreaking design for a curved mixed-use tower in Vancouver

The tower will be located near the entrance to Vancouver ’s famed Stanley Park, amongst downtown’s vibrant streets. With a curved silhouette, the tower’s two carved semi-inclusions will create the appearance of spatial balance. The tower’s 181 residential units will be primarily located in the semi-inclusions and boast substantially sized patio spaces designed as open gardens to create personal urban spaces. The mixed-use development also includes a retail space and restaurant.
