Potential homeowners with heads for heights will fall in love with this new development in Vancouver – because it has rooms that are cantilevered across the street.
The pictures reveal how these floating rooms make the stunning new residential tower reminiscent of Jenga. Being inside “makes you feel high hovering over the city, the ocean and the mountains,” the architects say.
The 42-story tower is called “Fifteen Fifteen” and is to be built in the Coal Harbor neighborhood of a Canadian city – and is due to open in 2026.

The cantilevered glass rooms, reinforced with steel columns, feature 18 “observatory observatories” in a building designed by German architect Ole Scheeren. These flats, compared to “glass boxes in the sky”, are on the market with a starting price of 3.2 million pounds (5.6 million Canadian dollars).
The entrance to each “Observatory Residence” will have oak floors and the bathrooms will be decorated with a “floating sink” and terrazzo walls.
When moving to the tower, there will be four penthouses from the 39th to 42nd floors of the building, each with balconies, “high ceiling heights” and open kitchens.

After sliding back down the tower, the Sky Lounge – another console area – will be at level 29 and will offer Vancouver’s ‘270-degree panoramas’. This lounge will be exclusive to residents and boasts “tall double-height windows”.
The statement describes the communal area as “the most dramatic area in all of Vancouver.” The architect explains: “It was a very important decision to provide one of the best spaces in the whole building to all residents.”
Elsewhere in the tower, there will be one-, two- and three-bedroom studio apartments and houses ranging in size from 1,089 square feet (101 square meters) to more than 3,000 square feet (279 square meters).
The entertainment center will be located on the fourth floor and will offer an “intimate boutique-style experience, similar to a private gym in-house.”

The tower offers one-, two- and three-bedroom studio apartments and houses ranging in size from 1,089 square feet (101 square meters) to over 3,000 square feet (279 square meters).
It will have a gym with “large windows to the full height”, so residents will have wonderful views, a dedicated yoga studio and an outdoor terrace, “where residents can practice yoga and enjoy the breeze among the treetops in warmer weather.”
The building is also occupied by a private dining room and bar.
This area, which residents can reserve for “intimate dinners or cocktail parties”, leads to a balcony that offers “views of the center and nature”.

The entrance to the complex will be framed by a “glittering golden canopy”.
Right outside the door, residents will find the entrance hall – an “elegant space” with wood paneling, terrazzo floors and “an illuminated water feature in a golden tone, which brings an element of nature into the interior.”
On the ground floor, it is also planned to place a café with “large windows and outdoor seating overlooking the landscaped square and [a] water element ’.
The car park will be located in the basement, where residents will have their cars “picked up immediately by a full-time valet”. The adjoining chamber station is described as “a dramatic space reminiscent of a top art gallery with polished concrete floors”.

According to the statement, environmentally friendly materials and “energy efficient systems” were implemented in the design of the building. The tower features also include “advanced filtration systems that supply purified air and water.”
The developers hope to obtain the gold international sustainability certification Leed (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) with the complex.
The building, developed by Bosa Properties and Kingswood Properties, is described as “precise architecture in all its beauty”.

Says Scheeren: “For many years, I have been researching the question of how we want to live in relation to our own private spaces as well as our communities, our cities and the environment – and what architecture means in this context.
“The powerful sculptural form Fifteen Fifteen, born from the idea of three-dimensional living, brings horizontality to the city tower. Its distinctive silhouette stems from the idea of activation. Fifteen Fifteen is about connectivity – connecting people with each other and their surroundings – and offers an interactive way of life. ”
