Elenore on 5th

The shape of Elenore on 5th was sculpted to view the mountains from Main St. The podium terraces with the topography of the site, providing a stepped plinth of commercial sidewalk frontage. Upper floors angle away from the street, turning the face of the residential floors to the north shore, preserving an expansive pedestrian view of the lions. At the corner of Main St. and 5th Ave. the podium steps inward, providing a public seating space. The district’s industrial heritage is referenced in the use of brick throughout, while stone and wood-toned panels nod to contemporary┬áneighbouring condos.
