Designers & Developer Partnership: a Vancouver First

VANCOUVER, June 2, 2015 /CNW/ - Renowned designer Niels Bendtsen, co-principal of Vancouver's Inform Interiors and leader in international modern design, has formed a unique architectural design partnership with national developer Intracorp. This partnership has created The Jervis: modern, design-forward homes that complement their dynamic West End neighbourhood.

"We're proud to announce that The Jervis is Niels Bendtsen's first foray into envisioning architectural design," says Don Forsgren, President & CEO, Intracorp. "Niels Bendtsen's insights and influences from the world of design have lead to an approach that is not often seen these days – a real focus on spacious, modern and clean planning and design."

Intracorp is working with Inform and the City of Vancouver to create a socially sustainable development that offers 62 market homes and 28 non-market suites, along with lively street level retail. The Jervis is the first new market residential development announced under the city's new West End Community Plan.

"Inform Interiors is devoted to innovation and fostering great design," says Niels Bendtsen. "Intracorp shares these values, as do our architect partners NSDA Architects and Richard Henry, so this partnership was a natural fit."

Modern design enthusiasts will appreciate the signature Bendtsen style notable throughout The Jervis' design-led floor plans and finishing details. Together with Scott Trepp, of Trepp Design Inc., each interior detail has been selected based on both form and function.  Each home is anchored at the corner by a large outdoor covered terrace, and this outdoor room becomes the focal point of the living spaces within. "This approach maximizes light, air and outdoor living opportunities, and purposefully moves against the trend of smaller and smaller, high-density apartment plans prevalent in the city today," adds Nancy Bendtsen, co-principal of Inform Interiors.

Set in a prime West End location on Jervis Street, The Jervis is close to a vibrant community of flourishing businesses, award-winning restaurants and beautiful parks and beaches. The Jervis will fill the needs of urban professionals and downsizers equally well, fostering an integrated community of unique, truly livable homes.

Pre-sales for The Jervis begin Fall 2015. To pre-register for more information, visit
