MVRDV - Vancouver Kingsway

Vancouver Kingsway

Vancouver Kingsway was designated as one of three main sites within Mount Pleasant to be considered for high-density, high-rise developments - with the provision for appropriate community benefits. 

The northern façades do not benefit from an optimum sun exposure so a planting strategy that derives from the plant species found in the undergrowth of the British Columbia forests will be employed. The species used on the north façades, and in some of the shadowy corners of other facades will be resistant to difficult (sometimes dry or even dark) environments.The southern façades, on the other hand, benefit from a privileged situation as they will have plants and flowering shrubs found in sunny environments.
