To best optimize views and sun while maintaining the street wall, Brininstool + Lynch designed this mixed-use project as two residential slabs set against the street and highway. The resultant corner not only identifies the entry to the building, but also, viewed from the highway below, the entry to the City.
Clear and translucent glazing combined with architectural metal and concrete articulate the lobby and retail functions while masking the garage and building services within the three story base. Above, an exterior level provides for private and shared activities composed in water, stone, plant and wood.
The overlooking residences are developed with full height glass and projected balconies to heighten their experience, while street side residences have floating spandrels and inset terraces to mediate their exposure. Similar materials, forms and detail continue the architecture into the building interior.
