4 & 3 Bedroom Homes
Rarely available in Vancouver, the Estates have three and four bedroom homes able to accommodate large families comfortably or the ability to host out of town guests.
Residents of these Estates no longer have to give up the functionality of a single family home to enjoy the lifestyle of high rise living including the outdoor living rooms and panoramic views.

Kitchen design by BIG
With a choice of classic finishes, complemented by rich oak wood flooring options in herringbone pattern and marble in bathrooms, the simple palette is continued throughout the interiors – from kitchen to bathroom – allowing the home owner to make personal touches to their new residence.
In Estates with an island kitchen, a unique island design was conceived that recalls the formal language of the building. The sculptural qualities of the island naturally make it a centerpiece of the living space; nevertheless the functional qualities of a conventional kitchen island have been maintained.
Westbank deals exclusively with Miele, the world’s leading high-end appliance manufacturer, who have curated an appliance lineup in keeping with a building of this quality.
The Estate kitchens are manufactured by Boffi – Italy’s leading luxury kitchen manufacturer, and designed in conjunction with BIG, with subtle ways to pick up the architectural language of the building.
We have conceived a unique island design that recalls the formal language of the building. The sculptural qualities of the island naturally make it a centrepiece of the living space; nevertheless the functional qualities of a conventional kitchen island have been maintained.
Kitchen island = Sculpture, ‘carved’ from the same material to exalt its plasticity through the simple reflection of the light. White Corian is used to express the ‘monolithic’ qualities of this object.

Bathroom design by BIG and Kohler
With the total design philosophy at Vancouver House, there was a re-conception of residential living, starting with the bold framing architecture, then continuing right down to the tiniest details inside. This is why BIG has collaborated with distinguished manufacturer Kohler to design a series of plumbing fixtures that are standard in every home.
Vancouver House’s bathrooms will be the first anywhere to feature these sleek and sumptuous designs, art-works for everyday use, complementing the artistry of the building. Kohler has been manufacturing fixtures since 1873, and BIG’s new conceptions for them will crown their top-end Kallista line.
Taper Collection by BIG
Following the philosophy of Gestamtkunstwerk (Total Design) at Vancouver House, where the architect has a hand in designing every aspect of the home, we present TAPER – a special collaboration for plumbing fixtures between Kohler and BIG
Taper by BIG reinvents minimalist design through shape-shifting geometry, turning the practical into poetry. The inviting contours of the Taper reach forward, transforming from cone to cylinder and into a distinctive right angle that eliminates the escutcheon and turn down tip. The result is a design that is unconventional, unexpected, and playfully approachable.
Closets and Master Suite Appointments by BIG
BIG has custom designed an innovative wardrobe, which is more than just a walk-in closet but a Dressing Room that features both style and functionality. Applying Gesamtkunstwerk to the closet system offers an innovative organization for tidiness finished in matte white lacquer, and a place to luxuriously prepare and dress for your day or evening.
One thing often missing from high rise living compared to a single family house is a basement for storage. At Vancouver House we are pleased to introduce cellars. Each cellar is located on the parking levels in a 200 square foot or larger secure private storage room with power and water connections, which is the perfect place to store a wine collection, seasonal wardrobe, tools, luggage, and any other items that one needs to stow out of view and to reduce clutter in their home.
