Emerald Wave

Sherwood Park, Alberta

Design Rational: Emerald Wave a mixed-use residential development located at a prominent intersection on one of the busiest access corridors in Sherwood park. The modern, edgy façade contributes an artsy sense to the contemporary neighbourhood. The entrance to the residential lobby is highlighted with the red coloured metal accent with bigger than usual sizes of tinted glass, invites the residents in. 

Key Features: The design strategy integrates the desired level of density with an attractive pedestrian-friendly street condition. The towers and the low-rise residential building are treated with similar colour scheme. They are clad with brick finish and architectural stucco with a sense of play using the red coloured metal accent treatments in the corner of the building and to the entrances of the building. The architectural step backs have been incorporated in the building façade to reduce the perceived masses of the building. Overall these features provide a pattern which creates a visual interest at the human scale
