1684 Alberni

Alberni’s elegant and distinctive design is inspired by the stunning beauty of flowing forms and ever-changing spaces, reminiscent of rivers and canyons sculpted by nature.

A continuous architectural spine ascends the middle of each of the building’s façades in a weave or ‘exoskeleton’ that takes its cues from structures found in nature; simple and graceful elements which, when repeated and woven together, reveal a complex system that is functional, alluring, and dynamic.

The result is a unique, alternating pattern that undulates across the building’s elevations and moves away from the stratified or monolithic extruded towers that are so prevalent in Vancouver.
