Vancouver House is the perfect manifestation of the philosophy of total design creating the total work of art – “gesamtkunstwerk”. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) of Copenhagen, Vancouver House represents the centre showpiece to the rejuvenation of the Beach District in Downtown Vancouver, Canada. The site is one of the most valuable commercial and residential locations in Canada, ideally situated between the False Creek Inner Harbour and English Bay, with a wide panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. The three level commercial podium at the base of this iconic “living Sculpture” world-class residential structure represents the highest profile and valuable retail space in Canada. GRS was commissioned by a large Canadian retailer to provide development advisory and creative merchandising strategy to ensure its operating excellence and optimal investment return for this prized real estate asset.
