[ Vancouver ] Jameson House | Foster + Partners | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Jameson House is a new 35-story mixed-use tower in the heart of Vancouver, and completed just at the end of last year, already the building is almost fully occupied. The project combines the restoration of heritage buildings with new construction: the lower level offices and shops tie into the existing streetscape to reinvigorate the downtown neighborhood, while the apartments above face dramatic views of the bay and create a new landmark on the skyline.

Fusing old and new, the site connects the city’s financial centre with its emerging creative hub, and the scheme integrates two 1920s Beaux Arts structures: the entire internal double-height volume of the A-listed Ceperley Rounsfell Building has been returned to its original configuration and the facade of the B-listed Royal Financial Building has been retained....

 

Sir Norman Foster said: “Vancouver has a spectacular location, surrounded by mountains and the sea. The design makes the most of the city’s fantastic natural setting, with balconies and deep bay windows looking out towards the landscape. Jameson House further develops a number of key themes that have been integral to our work for many years. The project combines restoration with new construction; it is high-density and mixed-use, offering a sustainable model for urban living; and it demonstrates innovation, both in its evolution of the high-rise building and its progressive environmental agenda.”
