The conceptual design for Lakeside Residential Towers is a luxury two-tower residential complex that responds to the site’s constraints as opportunities rather than obstacles. Units are carved out of slopping areas of glass, giving each unit a unique character that has exceptional views toward the lake, river, or surrounding city, while minimizing views into adjacent buildings.
The shaping of the tower massing at the lower and higher levels also enhances wind performance, providing significant structural savings. Carving back the tower’s lower levels increases the amount of sunlight, expands views and significantly reduces the wind impact on the outdoor amenity areas.
Amenities are designed to be resort like with a world-class fitness facility, a series of lounges, sports rooms, private dining rooms, a screening room, a technology room, exterior BBQ grilles and Cabanas, private sun decks, pools, and gardens. The amenities are situated in close proximity to views of the river and the city beyond.
Sustainable design strategies include rainfall harvesting and condensate recovery with grey water collection, treatment, and storage. The reclaimed water is used in landscape irrigation and in common areas for toilet flushing. On site water is also be used to facilitate the rejection of heat from the central chilled water plant.
