Natural skin for a residential building

Located in West Point Grey, a neighbourhood full of fashionable boutiques and dining options in Vancouver, The Grey residential building stands out for its very special architecture and visually appealing design thanks to its interesting mix of colours, materials and textures. Designed by IBI Group, this luxurious and exclusive four-storey development combines state-of-the-art facilities with a welcoming and lovely atmosphere both inside and out.

The main feature of the building is its harmonious façade, for which the architecture studio used Dekton, bringing elegance and harmony in keeping with its surroundings. Thanks to Dekton, The Grey achieved a linear and visually balanced look, thus becoming a modern structure with a sense of community.

Stylish antique white

Dekton Aeris was chosen for the entrance of the building and the key areas of the façade, as a material that blends in with the rest of the colours and greenery present in this unique residential building. In antique white with fine light grey and beige speckles and veins, Dekton Aeris perfectly mimics the texture of natural stone, but with the advantage of being virtually maintenance free. In addition to its shiny appearance, this thin and lightweight material offers perfect technical properties to ensure the durability of the façade. Its colours and properties have the added value of enduring over time.
