Concord Pacific tasked Walter Francl's architect team to create a building form like no other.  The form had to be meaningful and memorable yet also provide suites optimized to take advantage of views.  The original building proposal for the location had two matching towers connected by a series of terrace walkways.  The evolution of the form began by stretching the two towers to the corners of the site, providing more liveable window frontage to the suites.  The long thin wavy form then evolved to have an increased separation between the original two buildings.  This increased space or "Arc shape" together with the differentiation between the north and south tower designs provided the opportunity to bring the amenities up to the 19th floor.

THE ARC and Concord's One Pacific building together create a gateway to Vancouver's City Centre.  Vancouver's West coast is known for its proximity to nature and elements.  The form of THE ARC is inspired by the effects of wind on a waving flag while the texture of the building takes its organic influence from from the winds effect on the Pacific Ocean and its sandy shores.

THE ARC's iconic pool was born from an architectural and engineering challenge to the architect.  The challenge was to create a design spectacle to the public while stretching the bounds of modern engineering.  The result is Vancouver's most unique and sought after residential amenity.  The grand span is connected by 6 foot tall steel and concrete beams that house the glass bottom lap pool and support 9 stories of development above.  The amenity also provided a ceiling design opportunity to make THE ARC building even more memorable form the ground.
