sage tower lobby
The Sage residential tower is nestled in the forest on the western edge of Vancouver BC, close to the ocean. The nature inspired lobby interiors feature two special commissions: a golden woven wall of western broad leaf maple slabs by artist Brent Comber, and a carpet designed by Kodu Design principal Merike Lainevool, fabricated by Diurne, that was inspired by the reflection of sunlight off the surface of slowly moving water.
An exclusive collection of 10 boutique row homes, townhomes, and duplex residences, nestled within the tree lined streets of Mackenzie Heights. All 10 homes pair thoughtful design, exquisite interior finishing’s and timeless Edwardian architecture with the clarity and natural beauty of this unique Westside neighborhood.
Display suite staging to reflect the styling of a contemporary green family for a collection of refreshingly modern townhomes in UBC. This ecologically sensitive and sophisticated project was developed by the award winning Modern Green Development Co from Beijing.
Kodu Design was honoured to be invited to interpret the theme of "the Canadian athlete" for this suite in the athletes village. Kodu created a myriad of custom artworks, including the show-stopping acrylic "ice" dining table, supported on a base of hockey sticks with a "lucky looney" in the centre.

This project required a luxurious result to be produced for an investor with a modest budget. The result was a solution that helped facilitate the sale of the unit.
The design for these homes utilized luxurious tone on tone interiors, contrasting textures, and natural materials to achieve harmony with Sage's forest setting. The presentation centre featured a 24' display wall of alder tree trunks.
The challenge for this boutique building was to make efficient use of space without compromising its style, or sacrificing functionality. Unique features like built-in kitchen tables were devised to solve this problem gracefully.

Rather than having separate kitchen and dining areas, as is common in multifamily projects, they were combined to maximize space for living. Dada kitchens were designed with modern finishes, providing an elegant backdrop for dining.
Unexpected materials and hits of colour were used to give the DoMain project a fresh, distinct feel. Walnut and cork flooring options were included for their resilience and affordability.
