The striking three-dimensional 42-story building is situated in Coal Harbour, Downtown Vancouver’s most exclusive enclave. An inspired alternative to typical urban towers, Fifteen Fifteen, which is Ole Scheeren’s first North American residential building, fulfills his ambition to reconnect architecture with nature and the city surroundings. The glass-encased cantilevers are intended to “break the verticality of the tower, to project and fold elements out horizontally, and to make a clear connection between the natural environment and one’s personal space.” The commitment to sustainability, with passive and active energy savings built into the design, brands the tower as thoroughly contemporary and forward-looking too.
Ole Scheeren also designed the interiors, meticulously crafting each of the 202 upscale residences to maximize space and light while maintaining privacy and security across more than 65 unique floor plans. They all feature glass, glass, and more glass, plus plenty of wood and other natural materials, and the four penthouses and 18 spectacular Observatory Residences seem to float in midair.
The tower’s velvet-glove service was inspired by the finest hotels and resorts around the world. The thoughtful touches behind details like the fully automated home system, 24-hour concierge, and day-to-night valet and auto porter are all integrated into this vision. The most extraordinary amenity at Fifteen Fifteen is the two-story cantilevered Sky Lounge, which grants an eagle’s eye view of Downtown Vancouver, the harbor, the park, and the snow-peaked mountains of the North Shore. And then, of course, there are also more practical offerings, like a fitness center and yoga room.
