Skagen is a new Passive House community of Scandinavian-inspired, eco-conscious homes coming soon to 606 Foster Avenue in Coquitlam.

The development by Eighth Avenue Development Group features a collection of “Smart Sense Homes” designed with connection, comfort and happiness in mind.

Designed by Cornerstone Architecture, Skagen combines European innovation and style to create an exquisite collection of homes with contemporary exteriors and sleek living spaces. Outside, the homes are characterized by clean lines, large windows and distinctive white and charcoal façades.


However what makes Skagen unique is what lies beneath the surface, as the homes are built to the sustainable standards of the Passive House Institute in Darmstadt, Germany. Passive House is a building methodology that improves the comfort and energy efficiency of the homes by incorporating five key features: Super insulated exterior walls, high performance triple-glazed windows, fresh air heat recovery ventilation systems, air-tight construction and thermal bridge-free continuous insulation for even temperatures throughout the home.


Interiors by Port + Quarter echo the timeless design of the exteriors with Scandinavian-inspired living spaces that are both stylish and functional. Each three- or four-bedroom home touts open-concept layouts that invite uninhibited flows of light and movement across luxury vinyl plank flooring.


Kitchens offer plenty of storage and prep space and boast designer details like open shelving, a centre island and a convenient breakfast bar for family gatherings. Plus, home chefs will appreciate the premium stainless steel appliance package including Blomberg and KitchenAid® appliances.


Onsite amenities have been crafted to encourage interaction amongst families and neighbours. Residents have access to a beautifully landscaped courtyard, where you can stroll through the pathways or relax in the tranquility of the gardens. A children’s play area entertains the youngest members of your family, and gives them the space to make new friends while an outdoor terrace comes complete with seating areas and a barbeque. Meanwhile, a two-storey amenity building houses a sleek party room with a chef’s kitchen and a bespoke harvest table and bench seating with a dramatic double-height chandelier for hosting private catered events or pot luck dinners.

More amenities are only steps away including the nearby Burquitlam SkyTrain station, several grocery stores and restaurants. The revitalized Lougheed Town Centre is also within proximity and offers an impressive roster of shops and services like Hudson’s Bay, Oomomo and Sport Chek.
