Clémande unique sense of beauty, design, and style has been largely informed by her unusual upbringing. Growing up traveling with her antique dealer parents between rural France, Paris, and the mediterranean island of Ibiza, Clémande’s life experience oscillated between the nonchalance. After high school Clémande first studied comparative literature at the Sorbonne in Paris, where Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel tutored her. She also found the time to open her eponymous design gallery, still operational to this day, and to launch a successful handbag insouciant attitude of an itinerant hippie life, the bourgeois bohemian flair of the big city, and the strict elegance of catholic boarding schools.
It was the perfect foil for Clémande to hone her eclectic yet precise sensibility and effortless sense of personal style, which combines French chic with a uniquely cosmopolitan line, also simply called “Clémande.” (Her unusual name was given to her by her paternal grandmother in reference La Clémanderie, a bucolic forest in the Loire region). Since then Clémande has lent her talent as a natural tastemaker and powerful creative director to an illustrious list of clients and collaborators that includes several notable museums, design brands, and luxury fashion houses for whom she has either consulted, curated, or designed.
Most recently she was called to New York to revamp the home division of Calvin Klein, under the direction of creative renegade Belgium with an increasingly global roster of clients, Clémande continues to be a passionate polymath and a lover of the arts who infuses each of her creative projects with a wide variety of historical and contemporary influences, from design and several notable museums, design brands, and luxury fashion houses for whom she has either consulted, curated, or designed.

In her role as vice president of design, Clémande oversaw Calvin Klein’s entire collection of home objects and helped initiate celebrated projects such as a limited quilted edition of Gaetano Pesce chairs and the house’s extensive creative partnership with the Andy Warhol Foundation. Now based in fashion, to cinema, and most importantly, music. The latest proof of it are her stunning design concepts for Oakridge, for which she blended her continental sophistication with a spatial generosity and carefree creative freedom that perfectly befits the architecture and the project’s spectacular location in Vancouver’s new town centre.

Our vision of Oakridge is a testament to the ability of man and nature to coexist.
A place for life to unfold.
Oakridge is at the geographic centre of Vancouver, equidistant between downtown and the international airport. It’s connected to both by the Canada Line, Vancouver’s north-south rapid transit line and is on one of the city’s most important transportation corridors. It sits amidst the most valuable residential real estate in Canada, in one of the most sought-after locations in the world.

The Oakridge Community Centre is envisioned as the cultural anchor of the community, as much a public square as a building. Designed to operate seven days a week as a multi-use centre branching off from the main lobby, its dynamic range of programs, services, and activities will cater to the unique needs of the Oakridge community. Amenities include athletic and community meeting facilities, a library, a daycare centre, cultural spaces, a 55- plus activity centre, and youth services. At over 100,000 square feet, the Oakridge Community Centre will be the largest of its kind in Vancouver.
Every aspect of Oakridge has been designed to be energy inter-dependent. The elevators and escalators generate electricity as they move, which is then captured and stored for future use. Solar panels on the residential towers capture energy and turn it into electricity that can be used to light the park. A new urban woodland will be created by planting 1,400 trees and restoring what was once a natural enclave at the heart of the city.
Oakridge will be heated and cooled by a neighbourhood energy system designed and operated by Creative Energy. With support from our development partner QuadReal and in partnership with Corix, Creative Energy is designing a system that will provide reliable low-carbon energy to Oakridge and the surrounding area. Greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced by nearly 70 percent compared to conventional natural gas boilers or electric chillers, the equivalent to taking 1,325 cars off the road annually.
The Oakridge Aquifer (also called the Quadra Sands Aquifer) is contained in a layer of course sand and gravel that is roughly 12 to 28 metres thick, 14 kilometres long and 6 kilometres wide. Regularly recharged by Vancouver’s generous rainfall, this water is naturally filtered through upper layers of soil, silt and sand, and protected from air- source bacteria that can be found in surface reservoirs. By using this fresh, pure water to irrigate the nearly 10-acre Oakridge park, operate water features, flush toilets, and generate cooling, Oakridge can save nearly 77,000 cubic metres of fresh water from the Capilano Reservoir every year. That’s enough water to fill 30 Olympic-size swimming pools.
At nearly 10 acres, the park will form the connective tissue of Oakridge, uniting all programs and user groups across the site, while weaving nature into the lives of residents and visitors. We envision every element of a vibrant city integrated and interconnected into a complete community anchored within a lush, biodiverse urban forest.
The park will include a one-kilometre running loop, community gardens, playgrounds, and on-site agriculture.
Inspired by the great traditional food halls of Europe and the more contemporary ones in Asia, the food hall at Oakridge aspires to be a destination for global cuisine.
The Kitchen will be anchored by over twenty kiosks overseen and run by culinary talent from around the world. In addition to housing an unprecedented selection of curated food options, the 65,000-square-foot main Food Hall will also feature a mezzanine with a 32,000-square- foot brew pub. Combined, all of these elements will come together to make the Kitchen one of the largest, most interesting culinary venues in the world.
Oakridge will provide a variety of music venues and a breadth of live-music programming that will rival the great performance spaces in any of the world’s cultural capitals.
In the park, there will be three outdoor music venues, for anywhere from 500 to 2,500 people. Indoors, a dedicated, world-class live-music venue will program 300 performances a year. Inside the centre, there will be five more music venues: on the high street, in the living room (the major mixing chamber just inside the main entrance), and in each of the other two mixing chambers. When you add all of these venues together, there will be more than 100 acts performing each week.
As a permanent institution at Oakridge, Goh Ballet will leverage unparalleled new facilities to combine dance, education, and performance into a world-class performing arts centre. Goh Ballet and its students will make a significant contribution to the way people express, view, and enjoy art day-to-day at Oakridge. The plan for Goh Oakridge includes everything from regular ballet performances in the park and in Oakridge’s three major mixing chambers, to collaborations with musical performers, workshops, drop-in classes and exhibitions.
APPLE X OAKRIDGE
Oakridge will begin its new life as the best-connected neighbourhood in the city – maybe the country. Apple has selected Vancouver as one of their top 100 global cities. They have committed to investing in these cities long term for future technological innovations and collaborations. The Apple Store at Oakridge will be a hub for education, learning and connecting for residents, visitors and workers alike, and will feature a lecture hall, studio, and lab.
All homes at Oakridge will come standard with smart home accessories that work with Apple HomeKit, making it possible to cue a whole range of home functions with a few taps on your iPhone/ iPad using the Apple Home app, or with a quick voice command by simply asking Siri on your HomePod to turn on the lights, adjust the temperature, cue the music, or see who’s at the door.
THE FUTURE OF RETAIL
Oakridge will be a social centre, known for creating experiences . People will find the future of retail at Oakridge because that’s where they will also find their friends and neighbours here, they will listen to music, eat fine food, watch dancers in the park and be able to enjoy the city’s most interesting and surprising collection of public art created with an $8m public art contribution. Convenience and curated retail will be a parts of Oakridge but they will be two of many, interesting and integrated reasons to come here. We hope with Oakridge to create a place that people will come to because their lives will be enriched.
The new Oakridge plan adds approximately half a million square feet of new workspace, oriented towards the creative economy and the wellness and medical professions. This space, which will increase employment numbers from 450 to over 3,000, is distributed amid the project’s almost 10 acres of park. Added to the 3,600 jobs associated with the expanded shopping centre, this new workspace will create employment opportunities for people who will live at Oakridge, as well as for the growing population in the surrounding Cambie corridor.

Piero Lissoni, a renowned Italian designer, architect and artist with an international practice, was selected to do the interior design for the Piero Lissoni x Oakridge tower. With 42 floors Piero Lissoni x Oakridge is one of the tallest residential towers within the project. On the upper floors 28-41, the Lissoni Palazzi are our latest estate series and a continuation of Westbank’s history of creating the most sought-after homes in the cities in which we practice. Lissoni’s design approach for the lobby, the building amenities, the rooftop garden, and all of the homes was entirely informed by proximity and connectivity to the beauty and singular topography of the Pacific Northwest – the dense forests, tree variations, and mountain tops visible on the horizon when the fog breaks. The stunning natural views that the homes and amenity spaces in this building offer form the centrepiece around which Lissoni x Oakridge is designed.
Residents have the option to purchase homes furnished by Piero Lissoni, ensuring there is a consistency in the design language and presentation throughout the entire home. The furniture package created by Lissoni draws from inspiration from European comfort while emphasizing the light, air and space in each home. Artistic pieces provide special details throughout the homes in Lissoni’s signature eclectic style. Furniture packages feature chairs, tables, sofas, beds and cabinets designed by Piero Lissoni.
