This project is a well-designed hotel within a large suburban/commercial industrial area. The building has a strong presence from the street, and is composed of strong architectural features and an appealing pallet that enhances the streetscape and surrounding community.
The design utilizes strong forms with a curved, flying frame, articulated height, pronounced overhangs, prominent porte-cochere, stone, and accented metal panels denoting the entrance. The sophisticated arrangement of EIFS colours and textures enhance the building forms, and create a visual interplay of window proportions.
Through the implementation of prefabricated EIFS panels it incorporates refined detailing, ideal terminations and interfacing with other components. Th\e use of prefabricated EIFS panels in combination with precast concrete floor slabs, increased the sustainable factor of the project by reducing fabrication time, waste, increasing thermal performance and quality control, reducing impact on the environment.
The building utilizes a combination of textured and coloured Durabond EIFS systems. The resulting combination of materials, forms and textures produce an excellent example of a well-conceived and detailed EIFS façade.
