There is no attempt at an apology or a measure to disguise the dominance of these two projects and it is this omission that makes them wonderful. In a city populated with polite point towers propped up on podiums, the honesty of their unmitigated forms and dark facades is a welcome break from the traditional approach to high-rise residential design.
Standing side-by-side, Great Gulf Homes' X Condos and Monarch's Couture Condos are contemporary reinterpretations of the ubiquitous mid-century slab tower. architectsAlliance is the firm of record for X while Graziani + Corazza is responsible for Couture.
