Scandinavian folk are known for many things – brooding viking-eque good looks, an affinity for strong kaffe, an unwavering belief in the welfare state. But perhaps the most ubiquitous aspect of Scandinavian influence to permeate our culture is in the realm of design. Like most design enthusiasts, we at Blu have a soft spot when it comes to things of Nordic origin. Founded on the pillars of simplicity, practicality, and beauty, Scandinavian design is celebrated the world over for an elegance that is both effortless and solid.
So, you can imagine our excitement when we discovered a series of 20 townhouses inspired by Danish design were slotted for construction in our beloved Mt. Pleasant. Taking their namesake from renowned Danish architect Arne Jacobsen (for whom The Jacobsen at 256 E 2nd Ave is also named), the 1-3 bedroom homes at Arne will blend Danish design with contemporary West Coast elements. With the intention to balance architectural modernity with flexible layouts, you can expect spaces that are practical, livable, and beautiful.
Located on a quiet residential street in the heart of Mt. Pleasant, you’ll enjoy privacy and security while still having easy access to the libations, forage and fun of one of the city’s most vibrant neighbourhoods. Pleasant indeed, you’ll find craft breweries, bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques to satisfy every want and craving. Biased be we may, we think that Mt. Pleasant is one of the best ‘hoods in the city to call home.
