Waterford Condos

Graziani + Corazza Architects Inc. as Architects

A 3 tower development with the front tower housing larger exclusive residential units complete with a majority of the units having direct elevator access from their suite. This 10 storey tower along the waterfront framed with a 16 storey + 18 storey tower at the rear, defining a central outdoor courtyard space for the residents. Design of the towers takes formal cues from its context – the curving glass façade is a reference to the adjacent lake and provides for a dynamic/fluid façade, including the blue coloured glazing.

 

A rigid precast concrete panel framework anchors the glass volumes to the built form and contrasts the curving shape of the glass. Vertical precast elements frame the glass volume and provide balconies to the ends of the building plan allowing for usable outdoors spaces for the residents.


Floor plan design locates all mechanical services/exit stairs/elevators at the rear of the building as to push all the residential suites to the front / lake side – as to maximize on natural daylight and views to the lake. The lower tower is placed closest to the lake as to allow for the taller rear towers views of the water and the city skyline.
