The first actual images of what the hotly anticipated Vancouver House condo building will look like inside have been revealed.

Designed by revered Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, the twisting tower is a $200-million project that will include 500 units as well as retail space.

Local property developer Westbank recently posted some renderings on their Instagram account.

The lobby area will be designed like a contemporary art exhibition, with a "global warming" rug, which depicts a lone polar bear on a block of ice, and mailboxes made of wood and steel that "float above the ground."

Residents will be able to enjoy a 25-metre heated lap pool located on a wooden rooftop patio, and as well as the option of a private 200 sq.-ft. private storage cellar.

Apartment bathrooms will feature a brand new line of fixtures designed by Ingels in partnership with Kohler. And a kitchen's island, designed by Ingels, will resemble the shape of the Vancouver House.

Whoa.

Vancouver House has been working hard to capture the city's attention. It sponsored a pubic art exhibit called Gesamtkunstwerk, and unveiled an ambitious spinning chandelier set to be installed under the Granville Street Bridge as part of the downtown neighbourhood's transformation into a must-visit destination.
