European-inspired Interiors, Vibrant Location and Convenience

October 9, 2015

In one of the most sought-after Vancouver neighbourhoods, only minutes from downtown Vancouver, will rise Kenstone Properties' newest project - 1555 West Eighth.

Nestled in the heart of the vibrant Burrard Slopes enclave, with its intimate shops and eateries (including popular spots such as Farmer’s Apprentice, Beaucoup Bakery, Paul’s Omelettery and Cheesecake, Etc.), and numerous entertainment options, 1555 West Eighth will feature 20 residences in two contemporary four and eight-storey buildings separated by a common lobby.

“What about a building of penthouses? That was the creative starting point: To curate a collection of extraordinary homes from artists who share the same uncompromising philosophy for approaching design with clarity of purpose," explains Edwin Liang, Principal at Kenstone Properties.

Inside each bright, white-oak paneled lobby, the concrete, stone flooring, and wood extend from the outside in, blurring the lines between the indoor and outdoor.

With only one residence per floor in the four-storey building and two per floor on the eight-storey building, these residences truly do feel more like executive penthouses than they do condominiums. Add to that the angular glazing treatments on the windows, which offer not only more privacy but bathe each home in plenty of natural light.

Designed by award-winning architects at Office of Mcfarlane Biggar, Kenstone Properties promises 1555 West Eighth will be a masterpiece of contemporary architecture, affording the utmost in privacy, serenity and luxury. The buildings are a merging of steel, glass, Western red cedar soffits and painted metal panels with assorted profiles to create a unique and stunning grooved texture. Complementing the exterior facades are the multi-layered balconies and roof overhangs to minimize the glare from the westerly sun.

These three-bedroom residences, ranging from 1,644 to 1,882 square feet, possess finishes any homeowner would be thrilled to have. Each open concept home is showcased by walls of floor-to-ceiling windows, generous 8’6’ ceilings featuring ceiling-mounted lighting with rolled aluminum casing and frosted acrylic lens, brushed oak, engineered wide-plank flooring throughout and heating and cooling systems from the renowned Jaga of Belgium.

The level of finishes in the gourmet-inspired kitchens are exceptional - Italian cabinetry by European leader Friul Intagli, Corian white countertops and backsplash with a waterfall island wrap and premium European appliance package.

A private courtyard features a Zen-inspired garden where residents can enjoy their morning coffee while taking in the beautifully landscaped grounds.

For nearly 25 years, Kenstone Properties has taken its cues from design visionaries of progressive living spaces that stand the test of time - modern yet classic, timeless yet future-focused. Inspired by the best urban and natural landscapes of the West Coast, the renowned builder has a tradition of creating homes of enduring value.

The lifestyle, the location and the residences boast old world elegance with all of the modern luxury that the most discerning Vancouverites will be pleased to encounter.
