Merivale

Merivale is a residential development that wraps the corner of a major arterial and a quieter residential street. The design provides a strong dynamic public identity to what was a busy but poorly defined streetscape. While the residential street side is dominated by the modestly scaled townhouses, the larger stacked townhouse wing is composed of boldly extruded volumes skewed to pick up on the unique angle of the two streets. The volumes are wrapped with a carefully articulated mix of brick, concrete block, and metal siding.
