Making a bold statement of modern architecture on Calgary's skyline, these twin spires of glass and steel standing 44-storeys atop a street facing podium represent the height of modern and contemporary architecture and style. The Guardian will be the tallest residential towers in the city and they will be easily recognizable amongst Calgary's ever-changing skyline.
Extended glass balconies and metal panels only emphasis the beauty and grandeur that is The Guardian, meanwhile the strong horizontal lines of each penthouse suite crown the two towers.
Not only are these towers absolutely stunning, but also each stylistic decision was based on careful thought regarding form and function.
Nestled in Calgary's Downtown core neighbourhood of Victoria Park, this brown brick exterior building echoes the architecture of its neighbouring warehouses. "The Guardian's podium was designed to interact with the streetscape and present a friendly townhouse facade," states their website. Not only does this building add residences to the area but with its commercial space it is also adding convenient retail and services to the already bustling area. There are also a few units that offer live/work spaces for artists and entrepreneurs.
The views from this building are utterly out of this world. The building was designed to absorb panoramic views of Calgary's skyline and the rivers below. You can also see the Rocky Mountains on the horizon! Residents can drink these views up from their balconies and through their floor-to-ceiling windows.
