The overall project involved the redevelopment of an existing dilapidated industrial / retail one storey building, on a prominent street to the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport. The building required improvement to the exterior elevations including re-cladding and new entrance, including barrier free access for the Stalwart Appliances tenant.
A very modern design approach, including asymmetrical patterning of hardi-panels, with strong orange colour accent and aluminum cantilevered canopy revitalized the buiding's worn out aesthetic. The new exterior provides an animated appearance for vehicular approach from Wellington Avenue. The orange colour accents, provided primarily on the inside face of opening and voids also provides visual stimulation from the traffic approaching the building perpendicular to the facade.
