Enns | Gauthier is pleased to announce our collaboration with Pritzker Architecture Award winner Shigeru Ban on an iconic project in Coal Harbour. Shigeru Ban is known for his innovative architectural work with paper, particularly recycled cardboard tubes used to quickly and efficiently house disaster victims. He was profiled by Time magazine in their projection of 21st century innovators in the field of architecture and design.

Expanding on Port Living’s portfolio of exclusive residences, this 16 storey tower will be reminiscent of Ban’s famous geometric, crystalline designs and will be topped with a unique 6 floor pyramid built with wood and glass. Using novel building systems and materials to create a dense, environmentally friendly building, the project is built on a footprint that would be typical for a single family dwelling. The site is adjacent to the Evergreen Residences, an iconic Coal Harbour landmark designed by another cutting edge architect, Arthur Erickson.

Collaborating with Order of Canada recipient Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, E|G is proposing a cascading design on the balconies that will enhance the spectacular views from each of these exclusive residences. While the site is small, the project will pay close attention to detail. Each entry plaza will feature refined and elegant details fit to create a stunning addition to one of the world’s most desirable neighbourhoods.
