21 Mar Feature Project: The River, the ultimate in Calgary luxury living
The new River development can be found in the Mission area of Calgary. This area blends old and new architecture. 4th Street is located here and is very popular, with it’s fashionable shops and restaurants. This sought after area, riverside location and great design has seen The River become a popular piece of Calgary real estate.
The talented team that created The River included Ledcor properties. Ledcor acted as both the developer and construction team on the project. They have been responsible for landmark buildings such as the Shaw Tower and the Shangri -La Hotel in Vancouver.
The architects firm Dialog led the design team, with luxury interiors by McIntyre Bills. Dialog have also been behind some of Canada’s most famed buildings. Through the use of stone, glass, concrete and steel, they create buildings that relate to their environments. McIntrye Bills are a interior design firm with over 20 years experience. They are well known for their creative mix of elegance, comfort and functionality. The strengths of this team are clear to see in the River development.
Like many developers and designers, they understand the value of outdoor space in these buildings. They have maximized this potential by installing Solus fire pits into the balconies and terraces within the overall scheme. The Solus concrete designs do compliment the overall exterior design of the building. The high grade materials we use to create our fire pits sit well with the luxury feel of this development.
This image shows a Hemi 26″ fire bowl. The fire bowl has added a touch of luxury and warmth to the balcony of a master bedroom suite. The Hemi is available in 3 different sizes and 3 different fuel options. They are hugely adaptable to any outdoor space and location. The design of the Hemi works very well in this setting but there are other Solus designs available.
