The mid-sized building is designed to bridge between the scale and proportion of the existing neighbourhood three-story apartment buildings (known as triple-deckers) and the newly built larger scale multifamily developments. The design unifies a collection of apartments resulting in a unique horizontal, cantilevered aesthetic, which is unexpected in wood-framed multifamily buildings. The staggering of the facade – analogous to the triple-decker – modulates the scale of the building by creating a sense of individuality and ownership within a dense context, unlike most newly constructed multifamily buildings.
“The Petrarch Panels worked out really well. The entire team is very happy with the project.”
