B.streets is intended to create a dynamic relationship with its immediate context and community by providing a playful façade and a functional retail strip at the street level. The site of B.streets condo is located between Bathurst Street and an existing laneway on the east, offered the designers with the opportunity to not only develop and populate the laneway with urban activities, but also provide two separate entrances for the building for a more efficient access and circulation. The Laneway access provides vehicular access to parking and a more private drop-off and entrance for the residence. Situated on Bathurst Street, the proposed B.streets condo is accented with cubic expressions on the front façade which is a gesture that has been derived from the restrictions of the zoning envelope. The modular “cubes” break down the elongated façade along Bathurst Street, while providing a clear view-line for pedestrian. The retail level, at ground, is set back to enforce the pedestrian relationship and allow for a generous walk-way. Tearing back on the top, the proposed B.streets condo has a 4-storey brick podium with several bays that extrude the 4-storey datum to create variety. The B.streets development embodies a 9-storey residential complex on the top of the retail level. The B.streets condo proposal also illustrates 6 townhouses that face laneway on the east, introducing a more gentle residential experience. The materiality differentiates the podium from the top levels. Grey-coloured Brick is used for the podium to continue the rhythm of its context, a timeless gesture that marks the contemporary design of the building, while preserving the integrity of the neighborhood.
