Developer Team for The Hillcrest
For Graham Carter, Trevor St Germain, and Patrick Uy, bringing up families in Vancouver was the inspiration for pooling their considerable professional experiences into what became Vertex Developments. Their work is legacy-driven because Vancouver should feel like home. For generations. This means doing more than just building desirable homes. It means creating communities. In a city where nature, culture, and the economy drive world-class livability, there’s no reason why a legacy of community-focused development can’t take root. Vertex is committed to delivering projects that take the best interests of people and the planet to heart.
In over twenty years of practice, Formwerks has developed a reputation for sensitive, user-friendly architecture. This has been achieved by carefully listening to clients and translating their wishes and needs into architecture that embodies their functional requirements within an artistic building form. Their buildings reflect a public mood for comfort and tradition without the cold and austere qualities found in much of today’s architectural mainstream. Their portfolio includes Elina on Eighth, Spires Gate, Toppen Ridge, and Yukon Residences.
Area3 is a collaborative interior design firm that creates innovative interiors with an international sensibility. Known for their boutique luxury West Side projects, such as Cambridge Mews, their residential spaces are both functional and beautiful, with careful attention to tone, texture and colour throughout every space. Other projects featured here include Acorn, Berkeley Village, and Brillia.
