1555 West Eighth, an exceptional collection of penthouse-style residences, brings the next level of living to Vancouver's South Granville neighbourhood. Minimalist architecture defines the side-by-side four and eight-storey concrete buildings. Open-concept interiors maximize space and light, prioritizing livability while offering luxury in every detail. With only twenty residences, 1555 West Eighth defies convention—a rare opportunity for discerning design enthusiasts. 

“What about a building of penthouses? That was the creative starting point: To curate a collection of extraordinary homes from artists who share the same uncompromising philosophy for approaching design with a clarity of purpose.”

— Edwin Liang, Kenstone Properties

The Perfect Neighbourhood

Nestled in the Burrard Slopes between Granville and Fir — mere minutes from Downtown Vancouver — 1555 West Eighth belongs to a remarkably intimate neighbourhood. Little shops and eateries intricately weave into the residential fabric of this community. There is a discovery around every corner. You will want to walk. Everywhere.

Maximising Minimalism

“I have a reverence for simplicity in design, to make every line count. The process is driven by distillation : The continual layering and editing of influences and ideas, governed by the timeless elegance of economy — just as we find in nature.”

— Steve McFarlane, Office of McFarlane Biggar

The Complexity of Simplicity

  • 22 gauge steel, pre-formed and pre-painted metal panels with varied profiles to create a corrugated texture cladding the entire building
  • Angular floor-to-ceiling double glazing for subtle animation of the facade through changing reflections (over the course of the day)
  • Front-mounted tempered glass panels with an extruded aluminium frame and a graphic frit to obscure the slab sledge
  • Deep balconies and roof overhangs to minimize solar gain from the westerly sun
  • Pressure treated western red cedar soffits
  • Cast-in-place architectural concrete

Life in Comfort

“Instead of providing multiple choices for every finish, we selected woods and stones that best harmonized with the architectural style. It’s a timeless palette with the warmth of the West Coast sensibility added in to provide a quietly elegant backdrop for a life in comfort.”

— Michelle Biggar, Office of McFarlane Biggar
