The building addresses the corner and transitions its height to meet its eastern neighbours. By directing vehicle access to the laneway, the street frontage is reserved for retail and residential entries. The continuous ground floor and the indented upper floors respond to the residential character across Victoria Street, while the flat treatment of the eastern façade responds to the adjacent industrial architecture. The variation in the exterior walls also permits access to light and air for internal rooms and upper level landscaped terraces. The graffiti/mural finish on the lowermost walls fits in with the graffiti on other surrounding buildings, while conserving the pink/green colour scheme of the project.

This mural looks pretty chic. Love the color choices. The mural not only dresses up the building but seems to brighten the entire block. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.ReplyDelete
