Rising above two existing art-deco buildings, Jameson House by Architects Foster + Partners, is a new tower in Vancouver’s financial district, in Canada. Photographer Nigel Young.
The project involves the restoration of the Ceperley Rounsfell Building and the retention of the facade of the Royal Financial Building.
The project is an example of a building that combines living and working in one location, with ten stores of offices -including shops and a restaurant- and twenty-six stores of apartments with underground parking.
The new tower has a central cogeneration plant (the first of its kind to be used in Vancouver), planned to run on bio-diesel as primary fuel.
