Thread: Fantasy Renderings

    On the way to the ballroom I found a wrecking ball ... What They wanna do?


    They ordered another balcony tower on an office & retail podium so what can a Nimby do?


    They wanna make a pile of dough


    They like things concrete, black brick and shiny metal


    They like to zig zag with their glass ... not their marketing


    They detest glass balconies that break


    They hate thee

    Box Development Corp has a deal for you: 2 McCondos for $999,999


    Choose your floorplan:


    Choose your floor:


    Choose your window dresser:


    Now get ready for your cladding, colour and appliance selection, and pray your PDI isn't full of raging nimbies.

    Time to start dressing up those 8000 square feet floor plates: Option #1 on the menu: concrete minimalism


    NimbyTect's Yonge & Nimbyville is about as McCondo as you can get.




    Random pattern of balconies on a modernist grid approximately 60 storeys tall


    Wonder what Option 2 will look like?

    I gotta say, some of the latest renders are really interesting, I like them a lot, especially the Perkins Mansion rev. 1

    Not sure if it would work structurally though - no obvious core, no transfer slab, really narrow diagrids. Need unobtainium. Or revise for a Citigroup Center (NYC) type of solution.

    ^re: Perkins Mansion v1.1
    Due to small floorplates of ~5000 sq ft, it's a single-loaded corridor design with the elevator core on the northern half of the building. Obviously my cantilevered structure isn't apparent in this quick sketch. I'm studying structure in more detail lately and hope to sketch out another design for the site soon. So yeah, those supports are puny and probably need an army of consultants to rubber stamp it.

    Edit: Here's v1.05


    In my quest for realism, I'm slowly adding more detail to my designs. Eg: YONGRE is option 2 for Yonge & Grenville, currently in the window dressing phase:


    Need some balcony railings asap


    Continues the pattern and textured concrete design as seen on the Perkins Mansion

    I found some balcony railings in a dumpster on St Luke Lane.

    They weren't even broken--odd.


    Every developer likes to save a buck--so why not stack 'em 60 storeys high X10 units/floor?




    Now must find a hat & boots asap before those YONGRE condo kids get to 'em.

    Found some boots:


    Now need socks, underwear, a hat and perhaps one of those new-fangled smart watches.

    On the way to the thrift store near Yonge and Grenville to buy more clothes I found a bunch of red brick


    Option #3 needs a podium and maybe a model suite?

    Default NimbyTect remixes aA & Core Architects' aesthetic

    And throws in more red brick because it's the right material for the right building:


    (red brick not exactly as illustrated--I prefer the stuff aA puts on their DD podiums)

    Proposed cladding: Sotawall's Hybrid-Wall, insulated precast w/ red brick veneer panels, tempered glass balconies sourced in China.





    As per Toronto's Tall Buildings Guidelines, #Yonge #Grenville is the required 25 metres separation between that other tall building proposed to the north: 484 Yonge.


    It's always red brick time


    Podium in progress ... model suite stuck in a traffic jam.

    So a square, brick, Peter Street Condos? Into it sure, but hardly original...

    ^Although I said it was inspired by aA/Core, in truth I'm inspired more by Allies & Morrison's aesthetic--eg: Vauxhall Square. I have always felt aA/Core is sort of the Canadian equivalent of A&M, with more Dutch influences in aA's work and more practical British influences in Core's designs.

    Originality wasn't the goal. It's a remix--call it the chill out mix. Mind you, it's the tower I've always secretly wished aA would design & more to the point, the design a developer would build.

    You wanna see the bold **** I have in mind? It's coming.

    As for the style of architecture I like--the point y'all should be getting is I like diversity. I just don't tolerate trash.

    I am a fan of the RED brick, It would be exciting to see something that bold of a red, just not that oxide/ umber brown brick that people call red. A deep dark crimson red would make me happy whether the tower design was original or not. I really hate how people consider a tiny detail on a podium or a strip up one side an adequate amount of colour. Or even precast "red" brick aka brown now being considered colourful.
