Akimbo meaning to “stand with hands on the hips and elbows turned outwards”. An Architecturally stunning building Akimbo is sure to stand apart in Burnaby. The fashion-forward poses commanded attention in the artwork and marketing campaign. The moody, seductive dark color palette was used to create drama. The reception area represented the true lobby finishes. Including a  honed marble feature wall, linear lighting, wood veneer ceiling detail, sculptural Corian concierge desk, and actual lobby furnishings.  Oversized marketing boards showcased the two colors schemes. The dark color scheme is showcased in a kitchen vignette.
