River City Residences, Phase 2

The sleek white design of Phase 2 stands out as a luminescent jewel against the industrial feel of the buildings surrounding it.

Unlike the dark exteriors of Phase 1 and 3, the sleek white design of Phase 2 stands out as a luminescent jewel against the industrial feel of the buildings surrounding it.

Three glass mini-towers are connected on each floor with fully glazed passageways; units are constructed to look likes boxes jutting in and out and pivoting left and right. The use of translucent and white materials gives the structure an undeniable appeal that’s airy, modern and completely sophisticated. (in collaboration with Saucier + Perrotte Architects)
