As part of the overall masterplan for the Tippett Regeneration Area, 36 and 36R Tippett are currently being constructed at the northerly portion of the site. gh3 are the architects for these two buildings, with interiors designed by Lukas Design. 36 Tippett will stand as a 14-storey 291-unit condominium building with 50 affordable ownership units and a daycare centre accessible to residents. 36R Tippett is designed as a beacon for this future community, where the rental building will feature a striking undulating rich, deeply-hued faade with cantilevered balconies and thoughtful suite layouts rising above beautiful landscaped gardens below. Ready for occupancy in 2019, 36R is an 8-storey mid-rise building that will include 171-units, 50 of which will be affordable rental units. Both buildings will convey the same warm-toned metal cladding that will be a measured counterpoint to the first phase of Collecdev’s redevelopment of the Tippet Regeneration Area.
Designed with a rich network of publicly accessible open spaces and true to its contemporary context, these buildings invite people to circulate through the site with enhanced safety, connectivity and community interaction. Ever mindful of its relationship to the surrounding neighbourhood and to the new central park, a thoughtful approach has been taken in the placement and massing strategy of the buildings, ensuring greenspaces remain accessible and shadow impacts are mitigated.
When building communities, it is important to consider the long term impact of construction. Our construction guidelines are a starting point for sustainability and we constantly strive to exceed them. Below are just a few of the steps we take to ensure we create buildings that are lasting, energy-efficient and enhance the residents’ quality of life.
