1770 Pendrell is a contemporary 21-story tower constructed in the West End region of Vancouver. The spectacular building stands out for its impressive architectural design, as its mass is divided into two separate blocks, bringing a sense of movement. The Henriquez Partners Architects managed to preserve the traditional constructive elements of the West End area. Such elements, evident in Pendrell, include concrete, ribbon-type windows, and the landscaped setback that shapes the exterior with green spaces.
The selected unitized curtain wall system fits into the architectural approach thanks to its minimal aesthetics and structural construction, providing high façade transparency and static robustness. In addition, the advanced lift & slide system used in the residences meets the contemporary architectural trend of transparency, enhancing the natural lighting. The thermally insulated hinged system offers certified high thermal insulation performance, reaching passive house levels.
