Client Benign LAMB Development Corp.
Location Calgary | Alberta | Canada
Lamb Development Corp. has a reputation for pioneering stylish urban developments. These interventions significantly enhance the quality of life of residents and the surrounding urban realm. Lamb’s proposed development in Calgary at 10 Avenue and 6 Street Southwest will fill an important gap in the current urban fabric of the Beltline. O2 was retained to provide landscape architectural services for the development.
Significant emphasis has been placed on the creation of a high-quality public space along 10th Ave. A sculptural water feature has been designed as the interface between the building and public space, invigorating the streetscape with a unique pedestrian experience.
The feature has been designed to change with the seasons throughout the year. In the warmer months, water and movement are emphasized, while in winter, snow is embraced through lighting and careful material selection. Other elements of the project include a sculpture garden with installations procured through an invitation to artists, an outdoor restaurant terrace, street trees and custom site furnishings.
