Standing at 4th and Burrard, this mixed-use building provides an updated home for Comor Sports while adding density to the site with multiple floors of office space above. Transparency to the stairs animates the sculptural facade, using vertical circulation to provide a visual anchor stitching together levels of stratified program.
The three-storey building is wrapped by a curtain wall of architectural concrete and wood-look metal panels, creating a warm and inviting exterior. A vibrant red canopy provides weather protection for pedestrians. The “sliding planes” of the building, with its intersecting horizontal and vertical lines, adds visual intrigue to the busy corner in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood.
