Swiss Style on the West Coast

The Pinstripe Principle

The Pinstripe Principle defines the design of The Exchange. The pinstripes themselves are aluminum louvres – beginning at ground level of the new building and stretching skywards above the original Edwardian building – creating a seamless integration of the two structures. The building will be Vancouver’s first LEED Platinum heritage conversion, a collaboration between Iredale Group Architecture and Harry Gugger Studio.
