MYIE Homes describes the neighbourhood as a creative catalyst, a mosaic of personalities and perspectives with a colourful character. To support the artistic nature of this community, the developer joined the Vancouver Contemporary Art Gallery to open “Art Studio 45” at Main and 8th – a studio with the principle “1 artist for 1 year”. So, besides living in a beautiful modern condo in close proximity to downtown Vancouver, you won`t have to go far to enjoy the splendours of contemporary art.


Aperture in Oakridge

If you are a photographer, an architect or a landscape planner, you might like the new mixed condo and townhouse development by Buffalo Investment located at 795 West 41st Avenue – Aperture. Called by the developer “the art of living light”, Aperture was designed in a way that light can change the look of the building depending on season, time of the day, and weather. Special exterior features, created by architect Arno Matis, are like apertures on a camera; the floor-to-ceiling windows of each home are surrounded by frames to maximize sun exposure while minimizing glare. The same lightness was brought inside through the use of glass, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and bathrooms, and white glistening quartz countertops and cabinets.


The courtyards were designed by Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg, who found inspiration in tranquil Asian styles. The landscape is full of bamboo plants, river rocks, glass, water and wood. This environment invites residents to comfortably enjoy the outdoors while pursuing their artistic pastimes.


Canvas in Southeast False Creek


 Creative professionals looking for an affordable option will appreciate Canvas at Prince Edward Street & East 1st Avenue in False Creek. The developer, Onni Group of Companies, offers units in this development starting from $249,900. Canvas is located only steps away from the seawall, rapid transit and hot new restaurants, while neighbouring the Great Northern Way Campus and future home of Emily Carr University of Art & Design.


In addition to its affordability and location, Canvas matches its youthful surroundings dressed in corrugated metal and studded with splashes of bright colour. Complimenting the contemporary exterior and interior design, Canvas boasts a lush, green landscaped communal courtyard between the two buildings, in addition to private rooftop patios. It’s the perfect retreat for the creative mind seeking tranquility and inspiration.
