An Exclusive New Boutique Condo Development at Denman and Alberni Promises Luxury at Every Turn
According to Landa CEO, Kevin Cheung, the vision for 1818 stemmed from Landa’s desire to create something that was iconic and a game changer, something different than most of the buildings on the market now.
“There’s a common pastiche in this market,” he says, “where a lot of interior design for developers looks the same, and we wanted to elevate the definition of luxury in a project that we believe is setting some new standards for standout design.”
The starting point was the architecture and the location. “Architecturally, the building presents an innovative design that is cubist, but with undulation of form and a play of white that trickles into the interiors,” Cheung says. “So, there are a lot of clean lines, geometry and large spaces.”
Here are five elements incorporated into the interior design that elevate luxury:
Stone veneer cabinetry: A first for a multi-family residence in Vancouver, signature 1818 kitchens features stone veneer cabinetry, backsplash and counters. All three pieces are made from the same piece of stone, so the look is aligned, making a bold and stunning statement in these luxury kitchens. “The grain is continuous across the upper cabinets and there’s a separate adjacent piece for the counters and backsplash,” says Cheung. “This speaks to the craftsmanship. It’s time consuming and meticulous work to achieve that look.”
Bang & Olufsen smart home technology: 1818 is the first project to incorporate Bang & Olufsen smart home technology in Vancouver. Homes at 1818 will feature integrated smart home technology from the innovative Danish company on touch screens for unified home control of lighting, motorized blinds, multi-room integrated audio and climate control.
Smart technology means unified home control of lighting, audio, motorized blinds, and climate control at your finger tips.
Herringbone floors: This is a huge part of the aesthetic of these homes. “This is an expensive floor—wire brushed and oiled planks from Austria,” says Cheung. “The stained oak floors were used because it gives a sense of luxury. The flooring itself has a pattern and there’s an old-world connotation with it, an allusion to European stately homes and manors.”
The sales centre opens for private appointments on January 15, 2020. For more information, please click here. Follow Landa Global Properties on Instagram, Facebook, or LinkedIn.
