Discovery Place

Discovering Brutalism Architecture

Discovery Place 1 located in Burnaby, now called the evolving city of Lougheed is a strata tower and townhomes architecturally designed in the style of Brutalism. This style is known for it’s (brut) French term for “raw”. Hence, this style is known for the use of raw and functional reinforced concrete, modular elements, and utilitarian quality. Interiors Defined was awarded the project to redefine the public areas – large lobby and corridors. The design developed reflects a more contemporary vibe to complement the new city with its surrounding forest. Plus gives a nod to the finishes and materials of the exterior design. The result is inviting shared common areas for all to feel proud of moving into the future.
