Germain Calgary Condos by Lemay Michaud Architecture Design
Beyond a unique typology and a revolutionary vision, The Germain Calgary Condos defines a whole new approach to design, lifestyle and comfort.
Proud of its success in the luxurious boutique hotel domain, the Germain Group draws on their experience in high-end service and hospitality to cross-over into the new dimension of luxury condominiums.
Inserting a condominium tower in the heart of downtown Calgary was a great challenge: How to create an environment to nurture an exciting lifestyle, where one can find gardens, open space, inspiring views and the tranquility of the suburbs while maintaining the advantages of city and condo living.
In order to distance the condos from the ground floor to avoid undesirable views and noise pollution, the condos are literally suspended 45 meters in the air above the hotel and office towers. Seen from the street, the condos appear to be floating in space, hovering above 2 immense pillars, creating a giant arch which becomes the signature and entrance to this unique complex.
Inserted just below the condos and bridging the two towers is a state-of-the-art Spa on two levels, surrounded by planted terraces offering unbeatable views of the Calgary skyline.
These two large green terraces, in addition to contributing to the Spa’s natural environment, underline the project’s fundamental direction: Recreating nature in the city!
The team imagined a succession of terraces, each one set back from the next, creating a cascade of immense gardens. The facades of the condos viewing onto these gardens would be completely glazed, resulting in a contemporary living space with perfect harmony between interior and exterior.
The living spaces are large, high, and open. A unique dynamic is created between the living room, dining room and kitchen. Boasting limestone flooring, these spaces offer a majestic impression. By opening the oversized terrace doors, these spaces extend out into the exterior garden, creating a scale of breathtaking dimensions.
The privacy of each resident has been thought out with the utmost care. The bedrooms are distanced from the living spaces with buffer zones in the form of generous en-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets.
For an unprecedented experience in contemporary living, whether it be for the unique interior design features or for their particular relationship to the city, the Germain Residences redefines the quintessence of luxury and comfort in Calgary.
