Design Phase

The building is conceived of as a black form undulating against a neutral white background, capturing the movement of a Chinese Dragon dance.  This strategy mitigates the height of the building to transition down to proposed 3-storey townhouses to the west and north, and created a dynamic facade that is animated for pedestrians and bicycle riders along the new multi-use trail which passes in front of the building.

Four different suite types have been designed with fan-coils and plumbing stacks in the same location for all four, so that a sculptural facade is created by stacking and alternating between these four suites while eliminating all plumbing and fan-coil off-sets.
