Tapas is now being served.
Tapas is available in small portions, encourages sharing, uses local ingredients, and allows unlimited combinations.
Tapas occupies a typical Vancouver block: a 120 by 400 foot site near the Downtown core. At 5.0 FSR, the floor space ratio is dense, yet neighbourhood and context-friendly. The desire is to develop a mixed-use scheme providing an affordable housing alternative fostering a sense of community. It can be phased to suit an existing neighbourhood, and can proceed with a partial block assembly.
Tapas suits the needs and aspirations ofVancouverites who want a dense urban community. The Tapas Mod:jools provide:
High quality I high density:
ample shared amenities,
spaces for chance meetings,
roomy bedrooms, and
2.7 m ceilings that provide volume in space-efficient mod:jools.
Affordability through efficient mod:jool design:
shared household amenities, and
passive heating/cooling (eliminating need for air conditioning) augmented by renewable energy,
recycl ingJgarbage ch utes,
extra emphasis on alternative transportation and limited parking, and
loading/drop-off area to facilitate car-free living (e.g., taxi, carpooling and deliveries).
design offers an adaptable kit-of-parts at the unit and block scale suitable for different development contexts or for off-site prefabrication, and
massing and site coverage are ready to be adjusted to retain existing structures or introduce sensitive commercial uses - even a grocery store.
tapas: all you need to add is good friends and fine wine.
