Centro Skyhomes

Innovation: SkyHomes

Project: Centro, Richmond, BC (completed 2009)

Description: SkyHomes are designed to both screen and offer access to a traditional above-grade parking structure.

SkyHomes are a design innovation at Rize’s Centro project. In a location with challenging soil conditions, exposed above-grade parking structures are the norm. Rize worked with Hotson Bakker Boniface Haden Architects to create an innovative, aesthetically pleasing solution at Centro. The perimeter of the parkade structure is masked with modern condominium homes, providing full screening plus direct parking access for Skyhome owners.
