The Jameson House is the first mixed-use residential project to be constructed in Canada. Although several of these types of buildings have been created for commercial use, Jameson House allows people to enjoy this stunning style on a much more personal level. It combines the restoration of a downtown Vancouver heritage building with new construction.

Designed by London-based Foster + Partners, the Jameson House offers a sustainable model for urban living since it a high-rise, high-density building that also boasts a progressive environmental agenda. By blending the old with the new, the Jameson House connects Vancouver's financial center with its burgeoning cultural and creative hub. The design integrates two 1920s Beaux Arts structures with a modern glass building that looks like a folded piece of paper.
