The Royals featured in the North Shore News
Our project with Chard Development in central Lonsdale, North Van has been featured in the North Shore News. “The Royals” includes a new 24-storey building and a fully renovated 16-storey building for which Proscenium is doing full interior design services.
The article describes the design intent, quoting Alissa Foss, PAI designer:
“Residents of both towers will be greeted by beautifully designed foyers and elevator lobbies with wood-slat feature walls and signature light fixtures. Inside the units, the interior design is soft and neutral, keeping the focus on the amazing views. The kitchens have elegant white cabinetry, chrome faucets, GE and Haier stainless-steel appliances and quartz-composite counters, which are echoed in the bathrooms. Warm-toned vinyl plank flooring throughout will complement anybody’s furniture, says Alissa Foss, interior designer at Proscenium Architecture + Interiors who designed the project. “We chose a design aesthetic with neutral tones that will suit all renters and allow them to bring their own style,” adds Foss.”
Meet Rachel, our Communications Coordinator
Where were you born?
Good old North Vancouver!
How did you get into marketing/communications?
Strictly speaking, sideways? I come from a writing and dance background, but I often find myself in marketing.
What class in school has proven to be the least useful?
African Dancing and drumming. Though it was an easy credit!
What is the best building of all time?
I feel somewhat underqualified to answer this one. I have a habit of entering every old church I pass when I’m travelling. I’d say one of my absolute favourites is Sacre-Coeur in Paris.
Best brunch spot in Vancouver is…
Somehow I never brunch?
You never leave home without…
Your Great Escape would be to…
What single piece of technology makes your life easier?
What is your spirit animal?
Probably a cat. I’ve been known to stretch…
What word do you have trouble saying?
I can’t seem to get “bagel” right.
