Burnaby, BC

Brentwood Phase lb is the second phase of the Woodlands Master Plan development. This phase consists of two high-rise apartment towers of 55 and 45 storeys, providing a total of 900 residential units. Both towers are curvilinear in nature with undulating balcony slabs. They are elevated three storeys above Lougheed Highway grade on elegant Y-shaped columns. A one storey glass lobby connects the two buildings at ground level. The elevated towers and amenity podium provides residents and passers-by with a clear view of the Metrotown Skyline to the south.

To express the building form at the pedestrian level along the Lougheed Highway, large reflective pools under the towers coupled with reflective metal panels on the underside of the towers, animates the space with varying qualities of light over the course of the day.
