KING of the CASTLES T. Jones Group

Story by Joe Leary

ELEMENTS ESTATE IS ONE-OF-KIND It has been said that one’s home is ultimately his or her castle. Look no further than 1438 West 32nd Avenue in Vancouver as clear evidence of this timeless axiom. Known as Elements Estate, it is the perfect confluence of elements fire, water, earth and air, as seen throughout the property. This luxuriously appointed, multiple-award-winning, high-efficiency home serves as another benchmark of the prestigious T. Jones Group, which has been building exquisitely stunning properties on Vancouver’s west side for over 40 years. Founded by Trevor Jones in 1979, the company has created more than 200 exclusive luxury properties in the West Side, in addition to award-winning twin-tower complexes in Seattle and beyond.

精益求精

永恆不變的至理名言指出:一個人的家就是自己最終極的堡壘。儘管這種說法用得上的機會少之又少, 但溫哥華第32西大街1438號卻正正如此。 這幢建築物被稱為元素莊園(Elements Estate),是因為在整個物業中,能將土、風和火等大自然元素完美

至臻豪華典範

匯合。這個萬眾矚目的項目,正是享譽盛名T. Jones Group的又一至臻豪華力作,四十多年來,該集團在 溫哥華西區已經建造了無數精美住宅。該公司由Trevor Jones於1979年創立,除了在西雅圖及其周邊地 區建造了屢獲殊榮的雙塔綜合大樓外,還在溫哥華西區建造了200多家獨一無二的豪華物業。

This magnificent seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home—with accompanying detached guest house—occupies just shy of 16,000 square feet of land in the iconic South Granville neighbourhood of Shaughnessy.

樹一幟的七臥九浴室帶獨立客房的住宅佔地 約16,000平方呎,位於標誌性的高尚豪宅區 Shaughnessy附近。

A H O ME FO R TH E AGES While the prestige and elegance is immediately apparent both inside and out, this magnificent home is just that—a home— albeit a high-end luxury property with a price tag in the 24 million dollar range. It’s a unique structure that Vancouver won’t see the likes of again, given revised building codes and restrictions, for example, the new restriction on natural gas. “We wanted to do something special,” says Cameron Jones, president of T. Jones Group, referring to the unmistakable air of distinction radiated by the stately residence. And yet, this Utopian setting provides an ever-so-subtle level of opulence; it maintains a luxurious yet true home setting devoid of pretence. “We put in all the bells and whistles to create something unique that’s user-friendly, but with a good flow consistent throughout,” he says. Amanda Jones, T. Jones Group director, adds, “Cameron’s mind is always picking up inspiration from everywhere we go, especially when we travel. I think this home is an accumulation of life and experiences—things that we’ve seen over the years and all the luxury and architecture that has inspired us.” It’s inspiring to be sure: replete with marble floors throughout, a grand entranceway staircase, a beautifully and fully-appointed kitchen space with attached wok kitchen, and a spectacular and inviting great room, which connects to the multiple outdoor-living spaces and the kitchen with an omnipresent sense of flow. It all culminates in a truly spectacular structure. Cameron is no stranger to magnificent homes, having learned design from the best mentors possible.

永久家園 儘管屋價在$2,600萬左右,儘管住宅內外設施都彰顯優雅和品位,但這座令人矚目的高端豪宅卻恰 恰是個家。鑑於建築條例修訂和對天然氣的使用限制,溫哥華今後不會再有類似的建築了。Cameron Jones說道:「我們只想做些與別不同的規劃。」

It maintains a luxurious yet true home setting devoid of pretense. 雖然它盡顯奢華,但卻是真 正的居家設計,毫不造作。

這棟莊嚴的住宅散發出無與倫比的獨特氣息,然而,這種烏托邦式的富裕設置雖然豪華,卻又活脫是 個真正的安樂窩。「我們竭盡全力地創造出獨特之處,而且它易於使用,流程順暢,貫穿始終。」 「Cameron的思想總是從我們所到之處汲取靈感,特別是在旅行的時候。」 T. Jones Group董事 Amanda Jones補充說:「我認為這是生活和經驗的積累,是這些年來我們所看所感的,以及啟發我 們的種種建築物的風格。」

BEST SPECIAL FEATURE

Tyrone Brett of Canadian manufacturer Liquid Systems outfitted the vibrant bar area and adjoining walk-in wine fridge on the lower level. “To reflect the high quality of the project, premium best-in-class wine racks from Liquid Systems in Squamish were chosen,” he says. “Anodized gold was selected to complement the mirrored-like background, the darker marble flooring and gold highlights in the bar area. All Liquid Systems racks are unique and this valuable collection is securely held in place by custom-length aluminum mounting posts and double-bottle holders, featuring silicon liners that limit the bottles from slipping.” Norwood Windows similarly praises its relationship with T. Jones Group in outfitting Elements Estate. “Dealing with T. Jones Group has always been about exceeding customer expectations, offering new ideas and designs that push the building envelope,” says Steve Thorn. “This house shows the forethought of the builder’s ideas and how to achieve this from paper to reality. It shows the quality of one of Vancouver’s finest builders.”

在充滿活力的低層酒吧區和毗鄰的步入式藏酒冰櫃,設置了位於Squamish的加拿大製造商Liquid Systems的酒架。Liquid Systems的Tyrone Brett說:「建造 商為了體現這項目的高端質量,因而選擇了Liquid Systems的頂級酒架。氧化金被選為與鏡面相似的背景、深色大理石地板及酒吧區的金色亮點互相呼應。 所有Liquid Systems的酒架都是獨一無二的,如此珍貴的酒品,通過訂製的鋁柱和雙瓶固定器牢牢地固定在適當的位置上,並具有矽質襯裏,可防止滑瓶。」 Norwood Windows同樣讚揚他們在裝備Elements Estate方面的情況。「與T. Jones Group合作一直是要超越客戶的期望,並推動建築物發展的新想法和新 設計。」Steve Thorn補充說:「這所住宅展示了建築商的想法和遠見,以及如何實現從紙上到現實的體現,並展示了溫哥華最優秀建築商之一的質素。」

With such a vast outdoor space to work with, one can only imagine the infinite possibilities. West Coast Rock and Waterfall specializes in maximizing design potential and the creation of outdoor spaces. “The first construction site I worked on was a large, custom home build with T. Jones Group in Shaughnessy,” says Tyler Palmer. “We constructed a waterfall and stream in the backyard, creating a unique and natural element to the outdoor space. I was in awe of the scale of the build and the extreme attention to detail by Trevor and Cameron Jones. When I started West Coast Rock and Waterfall in 2007, my first contract was with them. I always looked forward to their projects as they allowed me to be creative and innovative, and encouraged me to design outside of the box.” He adds: “For Elements Estate, Cameron told me he wanted to do something really special. When I saw the site plans, I immediately asked if I could change the layout of the stairs and waterfalls, so as to take advantage of viewing the water feature from the pool room and expansive entertaining space. We also configured the stair entry to make moving between the multiple outdoor living areas flow better. Another stand-out is the underwater fire feature. I haven’t seen this on any other project and we were driven to make this happen knowing it would be unique.” In 2019, Palmer became a full-time member at T. Jones Group as Director of Operations. “Cameron, Amanda and I share the same vision,” he says, adding, “I look forward to bringing future projects to fruition, while continuing to set the bar higher.”

擁有如此廣闊的戶外空間,你只能想像無限的可能性。West Coast Rock and Waterfall致力於發揮設計潛力和創造 室外空間。「我從事的第一個建築工地是T. Jones Group在Shaughnessy的大型訂製房屋建築,」 T. Jones Group 營運總監Tyler Palmer如是說: 「我們在後院建造了瀑布和溪流,為室外空間創造了獨特而自然的元素。Trevor和 Cameron Jones對建造的規模和對細節的高度關注使我敬佩有加。當我於2007年開始West Coast Rock and Waterfall項目時,我就是和他們簽訂了第一份合同。我一直很期待他們的項目,因為這些項目使我能夠發揮創造力,並 鼓勵我打破規限地進行設計。Cameron告訴我,對於Elements Estate,他想做一些特別的事情。當我看到場地平面 圖時,我立即問我是否可以更改樓梯和瀑布的佈局,以利用從泳池室和寬敞的娛樂空間來觀看水景的優勢。我們還 配置了樓梯入口,使得多個戶外生活區域之間的流動性顯得更佳。另一個令人注目的是水底消防功能,是我在任何 其他項目上都從未遇見的。我們勉力而為,因為知道它是獨一無二的。」

F I RE, WATER A ND SOU ND To say this house is spectacular is an understatement. From the main floor kitchen area and great room, you step into a lush, privately landscaped outdoor area—something akin to entering a veritable oasis. Here, we see four impressive water features and multiple fire features—including two that ignite underwater—alongside multi-zoned lounge areas and built-in hot tub. All this serenity lies amid a cleverly concealed garden sound system with two in-ground buried sub-woofers. Sound throughout Elements Estate is of the highest calibre and clarity, complete with separate zone access, and all digitally-controlled and powered by Crestron, a fully-integrated automation smart-home system, which gives the user control of every aspect of the property via a single network that can be accessed remotely from anywhere in the world. “The interior has 48 speakers which include four in-wall sub-woofers, while the exterior has 12 outdoor speakers and the Infinity Edge eight-person hot tub has four additional speakers with two built-in subs,” says Cameron. “The garden has two sets of speakers and in-ground subs, one set by the fireplace and another by the firepit deck, which is located behind the hot tub.” The exterior sound specifications were intended for high-quality sound, which can be enjoyed at a lower volume, respecting the neighbours while entertaining. This is all augmented by the abundance of smart-home technology, including extremely high-tech security features and cameras, which control everything from climate settings to water elements,

With such a stellar exterior sound system, you can be sure that the features are equally complemented throughout the interior of the home. “The media room has a 15-speaker Atmos surround-sound with four subs, and is fully sound-proofed with padded fabric walls and an 8K projector.”

E L E ME NTS O F SURPRI SE With such a sweeping range of spectacular elegance and high-tech features, it’s virtually impossible to isolate one single element as a favourite part of Elements Estate. Amanda, however, ventures a guess. “There is an upstairs his-and-hers en suite washroom with adjoining shower, and hisand-hers closets, which are T. Jones trademarks,” she says. “Features like this make our projects stand out. It’s so special and the harmonization of all levels really comes together with an unexpected surprise in every room. It’s a very comfortable home, yet with a luxurious feel.” As high-quality builder will concede, they constantly swing for the fences in design, envisioning truly unique creations each and every time out, never relying on past accomplishments and constantly raising the bar for excellence. As Cameron explains, “I’ve had people come into our homes before and say that they want to do exactly ‘this,’ and I just say, ‘You can’t.’ You need to modify the design and make it your own, keeping the technical advancements and innovations in mind to stay ahead of the trends. Each house is treated like an original piece of art, which can never be duplicated.” “New ideas, being creative and innovative is what drives you and makes it enjoyable. It constantly flows and changes and you need to be ahead of competitors. I think there are definitely some elements and designs that we’ve done that work and get very positive comments, so we try to integrate them into some of our projects, for sure,” says Amanda. “But as Cameron always says, each house is a learning process and you learn what works and what doesn’t work and take with you what you choose. Over the years a lot of things have evolved and some things have stayed.”

驚嘆元素 任何高素質的建築商都會承認,他們要不斷地在設計中求變,並每次都設想出真正獨特的作品,除了不依賴過去的成就之外更要不斷地提高卓越 的水平。「你可以將以前房屋中可重用的部份進行修改或革新,但我不想完全因循複製。」 Cameron Jones補充說:「以前有很多人對我說他 們只想如此,但我卻說不。你需要修改設計並自己製作,同時牢記技術進步和創新才能保持領先的地位。新想法,富於創造力和創新,這才會帶 動你並使你快樂。事物在不斷變化,你需要領先於競爭對手。 我認為我們已經達至理想,肯定有些元素和設計獲得了非常積極的評價,因此我 們確保將這些強項整合到我們的項目之中。」Amanda說:「正如Cameron總是說的,建造每座房屋都是學習過程,你將了解什麼有效,什麼無 效,並準備好你的選擇。多年以來,許多事物已蛻變成長,但值得保留的亦為數不少。」

回饋社會

「我認為這點使Cameron領先於其他建築團隊,」 Amanda補充道:「他真的在那 裡,真正在施工現場,確保一切都按預期順利完成。 當你僱用T. Jones Group時,你 自會得到Cameron的協作,他肯定會親力親為打點一切。」 不可不知,T. Jones Group還積極參與慈善活動,因為他們的家庭基金會在坦桑尼亞 的St. Francis University提供建築專業知識,創建了“ Faustina”,這是一個四層樓的 建築物,可容納340多名女學生住宿。T. Jones Group捐贈資金來籌建這個住所,為學 生提供安全的環境,使她們能夠安全地住在校園裡。

Elements Estate多次獲得 Ovation Awards和溫哥華 住宅建築商協會獎,并在 國際間贏得盛譽。


GI VI NG BAC K There is also a philanthropic side to the T. Jones Group. The company’s Family Foundation provided building expertise at St. Francis University in Tanzania, creating Faustina, a four-storey structure housing over 340 female students. T. Jones donated the funds to make this residence a reality and a safe and secure environment for students, allowing them to live on campus.

ACCOLA DES Back on West 32nd Avenue, the efforts have certainly paid dividends as Elements Estate has been duly recognized for numerous Ovation Awards. It has also won accolades on the international stage at the America’s Property Awards, which honour architecture, development, design and real estate worldwide. In fact, as Elements Estate was declared the winner of the Five Star Best Residential Property, Best Kitchen Design and Best Residential Interior Design Private Residence at the Canadian level of the international property awards. The accolades may continue to roll in as Five Star winners are further adjudicated to decide which property goes forward to compete for best in their region, in this case the Americas, including Canada, the Caribbean, Central and South America and the US. That in turn could lead to additional acclaim for the whole of the Americas, and then globally. And if that should happen, Cameron says, “It would be an absolute honour and pivotal point to be recognized internationally. A true testament to what T. Jones has been cultivating all these years. A real milestone.”

累積的努力無疑在西32街1438號項目上得到了回報,Elements Estate已獲得眾多Ovation Awards、Vancouver Home Builder’s Association Awards及在國際舞台上獲得美國房地產獎等眾多殊榮。 事實上,這是一次所向披靡的得奬盛事,Elements Estate被評選為加拿大五星級最佳住宅物業(Five Star Best Residential Property)、最佳廚房設計(Best Kitchen Design)和最佳住宅室內設計私人住宅(Best Residential Interior Design Private Residence)等奬項的大贏家。隨著進一步評選美洲區(包括加拿大、加勒比海、中南美洲和美國)五星級優勝者, 相信這些榮譽可能還會陸續有來,引起整個美洲乃至全球的更多讚譽。 Cameron Jones表示,「若果真如此的話,這將是獲得國際認可的絕對榮譽和關注點。這會是T. Jones Group多年來一 直耕耘的明證,這會是一個真正的里程碑。」

Indulge: 您如何定位自己的室内設計風格? Soroka:我的標志性風格是現代西海岸風格,同時帶有優雅的傳統特色。不過,我並不局限 於一種風格。我認爲,人與環境密不可分,我可以幫助客戶創造一個平衡,和諧,以及流 暢的設計。 Indulge: 您認爲一般而言,設計的走向如何? Soroka:現在已經沒有局限性,我們不會就某種風格回到某個時代。現在是兼容不同風格的 時期,而且要有能力做到這點而不受批評。最關鍵一點是空間的和諧與平衡。 Indulge: 在您設計時什麽產品不可缺少? Soroka:燈具,定制藝術,塗料與墻紙。 Indulge: 列出五項未來設計時要考慮的關鍵議題: Soroka:1,客戶。理解客戶以及對空間的感受和情感,而且要從美觀的角度出發。 2,概念。搞清楚任何潛在的問題和因素,比如空間和時間的限制等。 3,空間規劃。考察其功能,流動及方便性,考慮到主人如何享受這一空間。這時檢驗其 比例,并確定空間的用途。 4,照明。照明有三個主要方面。首先是為整體區域提供的普通照明,比如過道;一種是 利用顔色和溫度帶來不同感受的環境照明;還有在重點墻面和烹飪區域所裝設的針對性照 明。 5,材料/應用。針對功能和目的對環境進行微調和改造,比如耐久性,過敏性,注意力和 客戶的一般反應等。設計師可在這部分發揮創意,在顔色,質感和圖案上做文章。 Indulge: 在產品設計方面有何建議? Soroka:尺寸和比例決定一切,瞭解產品的大小,確保符合其空間,以及迎合客戶的需要。

Indulge asked Geèle a few questions: Indulge: How would you describe your personal interior design style? Geèle Soroka: My signature style is modern west coast contemporary with an elegant traditional twist. However, I am not limited to one style. I believe people are a product of their environment and I help create designs that have beautiful balance, harmony and flow. I: What direction do you feel design is moving towards in a general sense? GS: There are no longer any limits and we are not reflecting back on a single era for just one style. It is now about mixing different styles and having the ability to do that without criticism. The key is to harmonize and balance the space. I: What products could you not live without when designing? GS: Feature focal points: light fixtures, custom art, paint and wallpaper. I: Name five key themes to consider when approaching design in the future: GS: 1. Who—understand the client and the feelings and emotions desired within the space, and think about the aesthetically pleasing perspective. 2. Concept—figure out any problems and parameters, such as limited space and time, etc. 3. Space planning—examine function, flow and accessibility for all, and consider how the users will enjoy the area. This is when to examine scale and define use of the space. 4. Lighting—there are three key aspects to lighting. There is general lighting for overall illumination, such as pathways; ambient lighting that conducts mood of the space with different colours and temperatures; and task lighting for something specific, such as accent walls or under-cabinet areas for cooking. 5. Materials/application—fine-tune and adapt the environment for the purpose and function, considering durability, allergies, traction and general response of the client. Here is where the project starts to develop its own essence of creation. This is where you have an opportunity to play with colour, texture, and patterns. I: If you could offer one piece of advice when it comes to product design, what would it be? GS: Size and scale are everything; know your sizes but understand the scale that works for the space/client and have fun!

SEA ROCK DEVELOPMENTS’ HARMONIOUS APPROACH TO ULTRA-LUXURY HOME DESIGN IS STRIKING A CHORD IN WHITE ROCK—AND ABROAD By Lisa Manfield

Photos by Brian Giebelhaus Photography

I

t’s best to throw away the typical questions about specs and cost per square foot when you’re speaking with Kaz Noori and Sharon Kaby about their philosophy on ultra-luxury home building.

For the developer and his design partner, the most important aspect of the custom homes they build is the “wow” factor. And that is simply unquantifiable. Kaz, the founder and visionary behind Sea Rock Developments, along with Sharon, have made a name for themselves in international circles with their lavish one-of-a-kind homes in the White Rock and South Surrey area. It’s a region they feel is ripe with both opportunity and natural beauty. “We’re all about the lifestyle here—the ocean and beaches, the parks and wide-open spaces,” Sharon says. “That’s why we design and build homes here; we fell in love with all it has to offer. We call it home.”  The scenic landscapes certainly add to the WOW factor. Kaz and Sharon elevate them by integrating natural elements into their designs.

SEA ROCK DEVELOPMENTS 和諧而又超豪華的家居設計 在白石和世界各地引起迴響

您與Kaz Noori和Sharon Kaby談論他們關於超豪華住宅建築理念時,最好 略過有關規格和尺價等問題。

對於開發商及其設計合作夥伴而言,他們建造的訂製房屋最重要的賣點是讓人 驚嘆,要知道驚嘆這回事是無法量化的。 Kaz,是Sea Rock Developments極有卓識遠見的創始人,和Sharon於國際建 築業界聲名鵲起,因為他們致力在White Rock和South Surrey這個讓他們感到 機遇與自然之美並存的地區建設豪華單棟房屋。「我們都屬於這種生活方式: 海洋、沙灘、公園和廣闊的空間,」Sharon說:「這就是為什麼我們在這裡設 計和建造房屋的原因了,因為我們愛上了這社區所提供的一切。我們稱這裡為 家。」 風景秀麗無疑增加了令人驚嘆的因素,Kaz和Sharon更通過將自然元素融入設計 中的特色,來提升景觀予人的感受。Sharon說:「在這地區特有的環境上,我 們致力於把裡外空間流向與實用功能等方面取得平衡,並通過永恆的藝術處理 手法來優化。」 然而他們並沒有將藝術眼光局限於規模大小或尺價等標籤之上。他們的創作是 由藝術和大自然啟發而來,有機地結合了度身訂做的設置、高科技功能及無與 倫比的巧手裝潢而成,得出來的結果敢說世間難求,起碼坊間就並不多見。Kaz 認為:「沒有什麼是不可能的。」


“There’s nothing that’s not possible.”


“We strive to create a harmonious balance of flow and function that builds on what the location already offers and augments it with timeless artistic application,” Sharon says. But they don’t equate their artistic vision to size or price tag. It’s about an organic symmetry of delightful custom features, intuitive functionality and unparalleled finishings inspired by art and nature, and unmatched anywhere else... in this part of the world, anyway. “There’s nothing that’s not possible,” Kaz says. Their “sky’s-the-limit” approach to building and design has put them in a unique position to serve a select clientele. “Some of our clients are high-profile people with homes around the world,” Kaz says. “They want their estate here to be a showpiece they can be proud of, especially when entertaining guests.”

FROM SHOWBIZ TO SHOWPIECES Originally in the entertainment business, Kaz changed direction to set his artistic vision in a solid foundation of quality home construction in a region he cherishes. Every home Kaz and Sharon design is tailored to creating an experience that matches the client. They don’t pay much heed to trends, instead preferring long-lasting palettes and materials. “We really try to create art,” Kaz says. “I turn the whole build into a set. Our whole team has a love for creating something that exceeds everyone’s expectations. What we’re trying to do is to push the envelope.” For a current project located in South Surrey, for example, Kaz and Sharon have taken inspiration from the natural surroundings to create a resort-like feeling throughout the property. But it’s not at all about impressing with stats or scale. For them, it’s all about the creative journey that starts by getting to know every detail of a client’s needs and ends in a home that surprises, delights and truly wows everyone who experiences it.

Kaz和Sharon無極限的建造和設計方式,使他們處於為特定客戶服務的獨特位置之中。Kaz說: 「我們的一些客戶是在世界各地家喻戶曉的人物,他們希望這裡的房產能夠成為自已引以為傲的 藝術品,特別是在招待客人的時候。」

從表演藝術到建築藝術 Kaz最初從事娛樂事業,後來他改變了事業路向,將他的藝術願景樹立在他珍愛社區優質住宅建 築的堅實基礎上。 Kaz和Sharon的每棟房屋設計都是量身訂製的,旨在創造與客戶之間互相匹配 的體驗。 他們不太注重流行趨勢,而是喜歡使用可以持久的色調和建材。Kaz說:「我們真的在試圖創造 藝術。我將整個構建組合在一起,我們整個團隊都熱愛創造超乎期望的事物。我們嘗試做的就是 超越自己,為客戶帶來驚喜。」 對於位於South Surrey的當前項目,Kaz和Sharon是從自然環境中汲取靈感,在整棟住宅中營造 出度假勝地的感覺,但他們並不是想利用炫目的統計數據或規模來讓人留下深刻印像。對於Kaz 和Sharon來說,一切都是關乎創意的旅程,要先了解客戶需求的每個細節,最後完成一棟讓所 有人都感到驚喜、愉悅並真正激賞的房屋。 就以此項目為例,二人組與施坦威(Steinway)合作,量身訂製獨一無二的鋼琴,以反映其客戶對 優美的經典音樂情有獨鍾。


“WE’RE ALL ABOUT THE LIFESTYLE HERE—THE OCEAN AND BEACHES, THE PARKS AND WIDE-OPEN SPACES. THAT’S WHY WE DESIGN AND BUILD HOMES HERE; WE FELL IN LOVE WITH ALL IT HAS TO OFFER. WE CALL IT HOME.”

INSPIRATION FROM ABROAD Generating creative ideas that match their clients’ tastes and functional needs usually starts abroad. “We will visit our clients in their homes,” Kaz says, adding that they also take their clients travelling with them to get a sense of what inspires them. Their favourite destinations for inspiration are Italy, France, Spain and New York, where timeless art and culture can be found around every corner, and where structures are built to stand the test of time.  Their penchant for working with natural materials arises from their desire for both quality and longevity. And carefully selected finishes are chosen for their ability to bring the outdoors inside. “We use a variety of woods, metals and natural stone because they age beautifully,” Sharon says. Despite their high-profile clientele, or perhaps because of it, Kaz and Sharon themselves keep a low profile on their work, taking on only a few projects at a time, always through referrals.  Their relationships with their clients run deep, and the trust that results affords them the creative freedom to design homes that are truly incomparable. “Our clients will say ‘surprise us,’” Kaz says, “so when you see their reaction to the final product, it’s very rewarding.”

國外的啟示 能夠激發可以符合客戶品味和需求的創作靈感通常多會在國外找到。Kaz說:「我們會拜訪客戶的家中。」他們更會 和客戶一起旅行,以期了解什麼事物和文化才能啓發靈感。 他們最喜歡的創意來源地是意大利、法國、西班牙和紐約,在那裡,每個角落都可以找到永恆不朽的藝術和文化, 而且建築物都經得起時間考驗。 他們喜愛選用天然建材,是來自對質優及耐用的考慮,並選擇了精心挑選的飾面,以期將大自然元素引入室 內。Sharon說:「我們使用各種木材、金屬和天然石材,因為它們歷久彌新,經過時日洗禮而愈顯韻味。」 儘管有高知名度的客戶群,或許正因如此,Kaz和Sharon對工作仍然保持低調,每次僅由推介而承接一個項目。 他們與客戶之間充份了解,彼此關係相當深入,由此產生的互信使他們享有設計真正無與倫比房屋的創作自由。Kaz 說:「我們的客戶會說『請讓我們驚訝』,所以當你看到他們對最終成果的反應時,就是最大的回報了。」

There is no one in Vancouver’s luxury piano field who doesn’t know the legendary Renay Zhang. She’s not a musician nor a music teacher (although, she used to be); she is a piano sales consultant for Tom Lee Music. Renay continues to win the outstanding achievement award for best piano sales in the world from Steinway & Sons, serving thousands of families with her musical literacy and piano knowledge. Her success comes from her firm belief in the brand, which equals perfection, heritage and education. She immigrated from Qingdao, Shandong province of China 13 years ago. Some people call her the “Queen of Steinway” for her amazing achievement, but she says, “I much prefer people recognize me as a happy coach.” Before becoming a piano sales consultant, she was a host in a children’s television show, a homemaker and a professional pop singer. All these past experiences have enriched her people-skills and her compassion, helping her guide customers in selecting the best instrument for their children’s piano education. “Many of my customers became my best friends and this is my biggest reward: it gives me strength and joy in my career,” she says.

n this commercially-driven marketing era, quality products have a high degree of standard against which they are measured. Bang & Olufsen is that standard in the world of high-end consumer electronics. Founded in 1925 and headquartered in Struer, Denmark, Bang & Olufsen began as the brainchild of engineering graduates Peter Bang

and Svend Olufsen, who created a radio that worked on alternating current. This was a significant accomplishment of the era given that radio receivers in the early days—as primitive as they were—functioned solely on batteries. Fast-forward 95 years, and the Bang & Olufsen brand is not only the world’s oldest electronics company, but it remains a market leader in the design and manufacture of audio products and televisions, almost a century later. As principals of B&O Vancouver, Simon Chang and Kevin Cheung are key elements in the Bang & Olufsen story in Canada, first making contact with the brand with a goal of collaborating on projects. “I became aware of B&O through a collaboration effort, where I was looking for a prestigious brand to integrate into a home environment,” says Chang. “Having a background in working closely with developers and homebuilders, it was clear that projects lacked premium audio/visual experiences that incorporate flexibility as well as design into an all-in-one offering.”

CINEMATIC SURROUND-SOUND SETUP

The staged products include the items which allow people to truly experience the higher-end high-fidelity harmonics of Bang & Olufsen. And while these specific items may be on the top shelf of the consumer price point, B&O belies the myth that high-end brands are largely unaffordable. “Part of the misunderstanding of the brand was exactly about its accessibility when it comes to affordability,” says Chang. “Bang & Olufsen is definitely a highend brand with premium pricing, but it also offers a wide array of price points, ranging from $350 voice-activated multipurpose Bluetooth speakers that are designed for portability, to full 7.0 surround-sound cinematic experiences, and everything in between.” The store itself offers a cinematic experience and patrons are urged to visit in person.

B&O has withstood the test and advancements of time and has been duly recognized for its flawless style as the first audio brand to become design-conscious while providing state-ofthe-art technology. In fact, Bang & Olufsen boasts an impressive acknowledgement of its form and presentation. In 1978, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City produced an exhibit of the entire B&O portfolio of the time, and many of these pieces remain in MOMA’s permanent design collection. It serves as a further testament to the brand, illustrating the role Bang & Olufsen plays both as a global luxury audio/visual brand and as a leader and innovator in the world of industrial design.

duction in 1925. The world of audio/video in 2020-21 is vastly different from whence it came, and the recorded history and chronological development of the work undertaken by Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen continues to serve as a true turning point in technology. And while there is no shortage of competitors who today dot the audio/visual landscape, Bang & Olufsen takes great pride in its newly launched, dedicated mono-brand store on the West Coast and has plans to expand. The brand is working with many of Vancouver’s most prestigious developers in implementing the “Beohome” experience.

除了出色的音效與設計,B&O還認識到永恆記憶的 重要性,以及它如何深入人心,永不磨滅。 “人們聆聽音樂或觀看喜愛的影片時的美好體驗, 這段時光彌足珍貴,必須用最好的設備才能享受得 到。”Chang說。”品味這些寶貴的體驗或時光,是 B&O歷久彌堅的原因所在。” 這項1925年問世時還比較原始的技術,卻適應了近 一個世紀的各種社會變遷與進步,是一項了不起的

People have long been impressed with the iconic design of various products in the B&O lineup, and true audiophiles are well aware of the timeless innovations that the founders pioneered. Among the exciting recent developments is the brand’s Beoliving Intelligence, compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, allowing home voice control. This marks decades of innovation in smart-home technology and is another landmark in the B&O story.
