Beautiful modern ultra-luxury residence at "Artemisia". Gaudi inspired architectural design. Large layout home with 2053 sq.ft. (approx). An artistic statement located in the heart of Downtown Vancouver. White marble floors, over height ceilings, & the finest European fixtures and design elements. Appliances by Gaggenau. Beautiful wood cabinetry and stone surfaces used throughout. 2 separated bedrms, + office area/guest room. Unique building with curved walls, valued ceilings, finger-print security, geothermal heating & cooling. 3 side-by-side parking stalls + large underground storage room. The architecture is very unique and there is a story behind the design.  It is in one Vancouver’s most dramatic architectural boutique buildings.  The 21 unit building was recently completed and named “Artemisia” after a 17th century Italian baroque painter.  More information from Paul Albrighton:  "On my recent trip to Europe I toured some Gaudi works in Barcelona including the Casa Batllo, and I could see the influence on this building upon my return.  As you enter the building through the lobby towards the main hall, the walls are curved, and not symmetrical, and with high arched ceilings, leaving some mystery behind each corridor and door way."
