The Modern on Richmond
This project, now under construction, proposes 343 studio, one and two-bedroom units in a 17 storey apartment building in the King-Parliament downtown district. The built form takes advantage of the site geometry, slightly angled to provide better access to sun and views while providing landscaped open space that addresses the corner. The solid brick massing wraps around the lighter glass volume in a clean-lined contemporary expression, adding architectural flair to a repetitive and efficient floor plate.
Proposed architectural treatments include premium brick masonry cladding that relates to the industrial vernacular of the neighbourhood with lighter, more transparent patterned glass expression for the main tower face. Walk-in retail/ office spaces face both major streets.
