Dockside Live/Work

Gallery

Dockside represents a landmark decision in the history of Vancouver zoning and a prescient move on behalf of City Council in recognizing the changing needs of the city’s citizens. Housing 46 cabin-style condos on seven stepped-back floors, the building is adjacent to a pedestrian-friendly waterfront and oriented to capitalize on views.

Henriquez Partners Architects was instrumental in creating the first flexible live-work/mixed-use zoning for the City of Vancouver, which allows an individual unit to be used for a variety of purposes to suit the tenant. Residential, live/work, retail, and office spaces, among others, can coexist in the same building—extending the usage of live-work previously only available to artists to all professions.

Occupied by offices and residential suites, the building draws inspiration from a nautical theme—abstracted architectural forms resemble a small ship with the seven stepped-back floors and a streamlined funnel to hold elevator machinery. The intentionally ambiguous image of the building oscillates between resembling a train or a boat or, from certain angles, a conventional street-wall building. Suites, accessed from a single-loaded corridor, can be used for offices, retail, or residential purposes. A master plan developed for the entire block resulted in the implementation of pedestrian-oriented mews that separate the building from neighbouring towers.
