Thompson Residences

New premium style condominium offering its buyers access to all the hotel amenities and services.

The Thompson Residences are a new premium style condominium offering its buyers access to all the hotel amenities and services from the chic luxury brand hotel across the street. This unique 12 Storey Residence will offer studio to 2-bedroom units, as well as penthouses and lofts from 350 to 2,600 square feet. The units will have 9 or 10- foot ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows with innovative features and meticulous details.

The project comprises two parallel buildings with dual frontages facing to both the streets, thanks to the series of rhythmic glass boxes pushing in and out where the living spaces and the private balconies take place, which create an interesting expression to the façades. The main platform features restaurants, shops and the main residential lobby. Above, rising straight up without stepping back, is the rhythmic façade, based on a stacking of the project’s building module: the basic single living unit.

The modules/units are first stacked and then pushed back and forth consistently throughout the building to create alternating private balconies and to give the building its distinct expression. The overall intention is to recognize the individuality of each person living in the building – addressing the human scale – while preserving a coherent understanding of a larger, complex building texture at the scale of the city.
