Apartment Buildings

Friday, June 10, 2011

The corner of Cardero & Davie Streets, West End, Vancouver
There are so many brilliant apartment buildings in my area. You could spend all day just wandering the streets. The architecture is wildly different from one building to the next. One could be modernist, the other art deco. It is so different from Australian architecture, where many developers/architects seem to have similar styles, and more importantly where Councils seem to only want to approve something that is within their narrow definition of 'in keeping'. Ending up with the street face looking rather the same. Here the buildings are 'in keeping' yet they all manage to have a distinct look. 

I'll be posting an apartment building each Thursday so stay tuned!
