Acton Ostry Architects

Located at an active intersection in Vancouver’s vibrant Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, Stella + Kingsway Honda combines a residential tower atop an auto dealership. The tower is oriented away from the busy intersection with spectacular views of the North Shore Mountains. Townhomes sit atop a landscaped podium. Along the broad expanse of the tower an offset rhythm of balconies creates terraces open to the sky. The narrow facade presents a dynamic pattern of small punched openings to Kingsway. Vertical ribbons of coloured glass punctuate Stella’s distinctive profile in the Vancouver skyline.

Chic and sophisticated, there’s nothing shy about Stella. Clearly proud of her status as a landmark building, this mixed-use structure is unabashedly avant grade with a playful edginess. It’s hardly surprising that when it comes to innovation, Stella is a leader.
