Yardarm was developed in the rapidly changing Mount Pleasant neighbourhood of Vancouver. Three open sides and the roof of the building are active to connect with long views to the north, west and south. The building accommodates clothing manufacturing and office uses as a continuation of the manufacturing history of the area.
Yardarm is home to MGBA`s head office. It is a contemporary expression of glazed form floating above an articulated concrete podium that carries a simple industrial design language forward, establishing a strong precedent for this evolving area.
