b-y apartments 

 

Edmonton, AB

4,341 m²

Schematic 

 

This mixed-use apartment development offers 16 units of affordable housing and 19 units of market-rate housing. There is a mix of 2 and 3 bedroom units. The main floor will have a 446 m² child care centre and the basement provides an amenities room and storage units for the tenants. 

 

Colour Connectedness was the design theme for this building. Primary colours by the daycare invite a playful feeling on the ground floor. The colour of the cladding respects the surrounding neighbourhood vernacular. Setbacks have been increased to respect the privacy of neighbours, as well as provide more greenspace and landscaping for building users and the community. 

 

The building will utilize geothermal for heating and cooling of the building. Many strategies to improve energy efficiency have been implemented, including LED lighting, site analysis and solar simulations, super insulation, shape factor, triple glazing and energy modeling throughout the design process. .The design also considers Winter City Design Guidelines.
