Bloom Townhouses

The proposed development of 32 residential units is sited at the south west corner of West 23rd Avenue at Yukon Street, one city block in from both Cambie Street and King Edward Avenue. The site massing consists of four buildings of three storey structures around a generous central courtyard, with access to units at street level and at Level 2. The architectural design uses a simple pallet of brick and glazing, stretching the brick course as a screen in specific locations to provide privacy but maintain natural light into the spaces. On the top floor, large glazed lightwells are sunken into the floorplate, providing further natural light into the living areas and a small informal exterior space in addition to the substantial open roof terraces. The ground-oriented units allow for an enhanced streetscape with planter lined individual entries and outdoor patios that delineate the public-private realm.
