TCA was invited by City Council to assist the developer in designing the external architecture of an already approved building envelope.

Within this constraint, the planning of the rooms along the street edges was manipulated to provide an appropriate hierarchy, scale and rhythm to the public facades. Bay elements were introduced so that the facades were highly modulated and of visual interest when viewed from the typical oblique angles that urban architecture is experienced in the tight
grain of the city streets.

The internal design of the apartment buildings and their entries were designed by the developer.
