Targeting LEED Gold.


One target market for the project was empty-nesters in the Annex neighbourhood who wanted to down-size without leaving their neighbourood and keep some outdoor living space. The angular plane requirements on the Dupont facade created the opportunity for large terraces. The stacked-block configuration of the building creates a more intimate and human-scale of building at each terrace and spatially defines each terrace like a true outdoor room. The result is a facade that is like a hill-side village.
