SASSO & VETRO
A high rise condominium development in Calgary’s Beltline, Sasso and Vetro provide 502 units in two towers of 24 and 34 storeys respectively, built on a common commercial podium.
The podium makes use of brick and stone to celebrate the surrounding historic vernacular.
An outdoor common space on the roof of the podium provides residents with a social area featuring fitness, recreation, and barbecue areas.
The iconic form of the towers responds to the client’s desire to stand out from competitor projects. Architecturally, the towers follow a holistic design reflecting the proportions of the human body – ie, the torso, neck, head, and so on.
The orientation of the buildings maximize downtown and mountain views.
