A new inspiring building has been added to our beautiful city. Jameson House design by Foster and Partners.  The overall design and concept is unique in its aesthetics with the use of curves, concrete and glass.   Foster and Partners have truly succeeded in creating inspired curved living spaces that also work with daily life.  The interiors are simply beautiful!  Its "simpleness" was the key to its success.  Featuring "state-of-the-art" Dada Italian kitchens which are topped off with Gaggeneu and Sub-Zero to name a few.  The attention to detail and design will impress.   A few things that drew my eyes right away were: the grout lines on the smooth travertine floors match the door frames, cabinet lines, and wall tiles.  Its as if you are walking through a framed piece of art!  These lines also continue outside onto the matching marble surfaced patios.  There are no visible vents throughout the suite, there are small gaps at the ceiling lines in a few spots hidden around each apartment and hallway.  The use of stone and back-lighting give you a sense of "coolness" while walking through a Jameson House suite.  If you get impressed by clean lines and peaceful bright spaces, don't look any further.  For more information about buying or selling a home at the Jameson House, contact Paul Albrighton directly at 604-315-5574.   This building features one bedroom, 2 bedrooms, and a few ultra-unique penthouses.  To view more information and MLS listings visit this page:
