You don’t have to live in Gryphon Development’s latest build—coming soon to 6100 West Boulevard in Vancouver—to experience its splendour.
This summer, treat yourself, like we did, to a tour of a botanical-inspired art exhibit on South Granville that’s inspired by the five-storey, 63-home Gryphon House. The developer has teamed with local design firm Casestudy Studio, illustrator Aileen Lee and Kado Flowers on a large-scale sensory experience that brings its vision to life. The living artwork is a lush indoor garden featuring textural grasses, moss and vibrant wildflowers juxtaposed against Gryphon House’s classical architecture. A treat to meander through, visitors are also encouraged to share their creative visions for the future of Kerrisdale and the Arbutus Greenway on social via a custom-designed digital illustration; the graphic, created by Lee, depicts a section of the greenway but leaves the foreground blank for imaginative individuals to fill in their own ideas.
The best part? For every submission posted on Instagram using #MyArbutusDreamway and tagging @gryphondevelopment, a donation of $10 will be made to support Arts Umbrella community programs. —Noa Nichol
