On the top floors of one of the tallest towers at Oakridge, we challenged Italian master designer, architect and artist Piero Lissoni to create our latest estate series — a continuation of our long history of creating the most sought after homes in the cities in which we practice.
The Palazzi at Piero Lissoni x Oakridge represent the ultimate residential offering within what is simply one of the most sophisticated and layered developments in the world. They are also, for Westbank, the continuation of a long tradition of bringing the most refined residences possible to Canada, the United States and Tokyo. In a world where terms of ‘luxury’ and ‘iconic’ are traded so easily, the cream rises to the top. Westbank’s most luxurious homes – the estate suites – are the most sought after homes in whichever city they are offered because they truly embody these concepts in every respect.
Lissoni Inc. is the New York-based interior design practice of architect and designer Piero Lissoni. It is a part of Lissoni Associati, the interdisciplinary studio established in Milan in 1986.
Piero Lissoni at Oakridge
Lissoni was selected to do the interior design for the building, Piero Lissoni at Oakridge. Lissoni’s design approach for the lobby, the building amenities, the rooftop garden, and all the homes was entirely informed by the proximity and connectivity to the majestic beauty and singular topography of the Pacific Northwest – the dense forest, tree variations, and mountain tops visible on the horizon when the fog breaks.
A Total Design
At Oakridge, with our Palazzi estates, we continue to refine our design with a number of common collaborators such as B&B Italia, Boffi and Miele. From the suite entry door to the triple pane curtain wall envelope and everything in between, we strive to provide stunningly beautiful homes. With what we have seen working with our collaborators thus far, we are confident that our latest effort at Oakridge will be among our finest work to date.
An Extension of your Home
Half of Piero Lissoni at Oakridge’s seventh floor is dedicated to resident amenities. The floor contains a residential lounge with extraordinary views of the park below. The dominant focal point of the lounge is the fireplace clad in blackened steel around which residents can convene on De Padova sofas and Italian inspired lounge chairs. The lounge includes a cinema room, a private dining area and a kitchen facility for easy entertaining. The floors and ceilings are clad in continental oak, and the design of the lounge uses atypical partitions including curtains, glass and bookcases to keep the overall space as open and fluid as possible. Additionally, the seventh floor offers private study rooms, as well as a music room for performing and listening clad in burgundy upholstered panels for acoustics, and a games room with a billiards table. A landscaped exterior amenity garden on the seventh floor connects Piero Lissoni x Oakridge to a wellness centre, complete with cardio equipment, a weight room, and space for yoga and personal training sessions. For additional amenities, homeowners at Piero Lissoni x Oakridge will have access to a membership program for the Oakridge Athletic Club.
