Sydney Video Building
Sydney, Nova Scotia

A limited construction budget dictated the form and language of the architecture for this structure. Horizontal banding, and a curved corner feature, effectively mobilize the facade fenestration, and create a dynamic dialogue with the street. Trifos Design Consultants provided full design services for this facility, from conceptual and schematic design, through to construction/contract administration. This commercial facility, located at the intersection of two of the busiest streets in downtown Sydney, was designed to accommodate its corner-lot location, as well as the Client's requirement for storefront parking. The interior of the facility was designed to maximize usage of floor space, be extremely durable, and also be relatively easy to maintain. The structure successfully met the Client's budget and criteria for ease of accessability, and low internal and external maintenance.
