TELUS garden has transformed an entire city block in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
Its innovative design and master plan were created by Henriquez Partners Architects. TELUS, North America’s leading technology company, and Westbank, Canada’s premier real estate developer, partnered to bring this next-generation mixed-use development to market.
The 24-storey signature office building features LEED Platinum standards certification. Architectural elements include a spectacular double-height wood-sculpted roof and glass-encased lobby with flourishing gardens, a pristine plaza, cantilevered 4-story sky gardens, a rooftop forest, expansive green roofs, and LED integrated facade lighting to support graphic animation and videos.
Eos Lightmedia developed the lighting & media system design for the innovative feature elements that define this project in Vancouver’s urban domain.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
