Choklit Townhomes - Arthur Erickson
CHOKLIT TOWNHOMES:

Designed 2004, with Nick Milkovich Architects Choklit is a concrete townhouse triplex. The name comes from the nearby park where the original Purdy's Chocolates factory once stood. The homes are designed to let natural light into all rooms with ceilings that soar from 12' to 30' high. The master bedroom and south atrium over the kitchen have skylights that are 15' deep, and span the width of the units.

The design emphasizes natural light and air flow. High loft windows create naturally bright spaces, and cross ventilation through the length of the building provides excellent passive air conditioning. There are central fully exposed staircases made of solid edge grain fir treads and stainless steel, extending from ground level to the roof skylights. The massive sliding glass skylights provide access to a lushly landscaped private roof deck, finished with stone, stainless steel and waterfall features. From there are panoramic views of downtown Vancouver, the ocean, and the mountains beyond.
