Parkside Victoria Sustainable Condominuim by The Hulbert Group
The Hulbert Group has designed this sustainable architectural building project of luxurious condominuim and urban multi-family residential located in downtown Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. The Parkside Victoria condominium is a 126-suite mixed-use with two independent 7 and 8 storey midrise structures are linked by a garden atrium lobby. Amenities include a spa, fitness center, indoor pool, cosmetic surgeon, convenience retail, offices, and food and beverage facilities.
Sustainability and stewardship are the primary principles behind the design and construction of Parkside. The building complex is designed to be among the most energy-efficient, sustainable works of architecture in Canada. Some of the high performance strategies include a storm water retention tank which stores and uses rainwater collected from the site to irrigate landscaped courtyards and rooftop gardens; fritted glass sunshades and operable windows to reduce heat gain and provide natural ventilation; low-flow / flush water consuming fixtures and Energy Star-rated appliances.
Parkside successfully responds to a varied immediate context ranging from cherished heritage buildings to valued permanent open green space, a developing urban core, and framing key arterial connectors. Given the mix of adjacent contextual forces, the solution emerges as a modern building that peacefully co-exists within the historic capital city of Victoria’s downtown core. The project was completed in July 2009.
