SHAPE Architecture has recently submitted a Building Permit for a development of 27 residential units sited at the South West corner of West 23rd Avenue at Yukon Street. The site massing consists of four buildings of two and three storey structures around a generous central courtyard, with access to units at street level and at Level 2.
The architectural design looks to use a simple palette of brick and glazing, stretching the brick course in specific locations to provide more privacy but maintain natural light into these spaces. On the top floor, large glazed lightwells are sunken into the floorplate—providing more light into the living spaces and a small informal external space in addition to the substantial open roof terraces. The ground-oriented units allow for an enhanced streetscape with planter lined individual entries that delineate the public-private realm.
