This car park rooftop, on W Cordova Street, offers views over the whole city and to North Vancouver and the Lions, twin peaks. The street leads to Gastown: Vancouver’s oldest district with a plethora of fashion boutiques, restaurants and design stores set amongst unique architecture of Victorian buildings and cobblestone pavements. The downtown skyline here merges into the famous Stanley Park, semi-wild parkland and as the eye extends north over the Pacific inlet, mountains tower over North Vancouver district with iconic peaks of Lions Head.
The city's famous golden beige architecture serves as the perfect reference for this warm vintage colour combination. Tying together the brutalist concrete structures with umber brick adds a depth of tones that would be useful for retro product design, fashion pieces and furniture.
