FIFTEEN FIFTEEN BY OLE SCHEEREN, A NEW TYPOLOGY FOR URBAN LIVING

 

german practice büro ole scheeren unveils new images of fifteen fifteen, its newly planned luxury condominium in vancouver. the high-rise will introduce ‘three-dimensional urban living’ to the canadian city, defined by its sculptural glass cantilevers which will reach out across the urban fabric towards the nature beyond. the tower is büro ole scheeren’s first work of architecture soon to be realized in north america. every element of the development, from its exterior through to the landscaping and carefully curated interiors. 

 

ole scheeren comments: ‘my vision for fifteen fifteen was to forge an immersive, three-dimensional connection between nature, urban living, and personal space. the building actively positions the individual within its distinct community and embraces vancouver’s breathtaking landscape.’

LUXURy RESIDENCEs reaching out to vancouver

 

the sculptural architecture generates 202 residences and 69 diverse apartment types across the building, all laid out to maximize space and light, with the cantilevers providing completely unique 270 degree panoramic views. warm wooden floors are echoed by matching ceilings, emphasizing the horizontality of the building’s floorplans, and creating elevated urban spaces more reminiscent of villas than tower apartments.

 

one of the spectacular cantilevers of the tower houses the sky lounge: a shared communal space floating above the city, open to all residents. it contains a specially designed modular seating system that can be rearranged to suit residents’ needs, and whose undulating form mirrors the clouds and mountains of the surrounding landscape.
