DESIGN CONCEPT Inspired by the awesome and unusual art style of M.C. Escher’s, “relativity” the Relativity Residence brings a new perspective to an artist’s ideal live-work space. The merge of modern architecture and the creativity of M.C. Escher’s artwork will spark a new flare to the city of Toronto. The expression of M.C. Escher’s artwork not only describes to its viewer the impossibly defining laws of gravity but also the different ideas and percep- tions that defy the laws of artistry. The production of this design is to accommodate the artist’s needs physically as well as artistically; a design as such brings a spark and a sense of style as Relativity Residence both fits in and stands out in the community. The creation of the “Relativity Residence” was to inspire the mind that lies within a creative thinker. Through the use of the cladding material, fenes- trations, building setbacks and the canopy system, the design of the Relativity Residence was able to directly correlate with the physical aspect of the concept, that is the “stairs”. The prodema panels are positioned in a way to closely resemble the profile of steps; the fenestrations are stag- gered within the prodema panels to simulate the step profile within the steps of the prodema. As the building walls step back, the walls further up step back, the canopy systems are positioned one on top of each other in a pyramid fashion. Symbolically, the painting represents different paths leading to a desired outcome, the building performs this same notion through the different components of the building. The artists are reached socially through the use of wall art located on both the front and back of the Relativity Residence and the inspiring quotes from artists like M.C. Escher written within the building. Responding to problems in the nearby community became an aspect to the design of Relativity Residence. One important aspect was the views to the Paul Garfinkel Parkette, it being the best view within the whole building; this now leaves the question of how to provide a view to the residents at the back of the building. This resulted in a void within the center of the building in which murals are painted on the walls of the courtyard, giving the artists a more useful view. Another obstacle was to fit the design into the context of the community while preparing for the new community later on. This inspired the design greatly as Relativity Residence approaches a more contemporary style. The strategy of making distinctly some walls a canvas for artist to express their artistic style to help the building blend in with the neighboring buildings and context of the community. As all artist have different ideas, the correlation of the Relativity Residence define the different views people may have for this building. Relativity Residence is meant to be its own distinct piece of artwork that is different from its predecessors.

SUSTAINABILITITY Materials: The inclusion of sustainability is crucial to building design as is determines the buildings impact on the environment and the planet on a whole. Throughout the design of the “Relativity Residence” numerous materials were considered in what would be the structure, cladding, fenestrations etc. of the building. All these components allow a diversity of different material. Each material was carefully thought-out in what materials are most reasonable for the type of building that it is as well as aesthetically pleasing in response to a sustainable building design. These different components help make the Relativity Residence a more sustainable building and less of an impact on the environment. What was used to clad the building was the natural wood panels of Prodema “ProdEX” a holder of numerous awards for their environmental commitment. Prodema was awarded the Management certification for having an environmental protocol, as new environmental standards develop. Awarded ISO14006 for ECOdesign which recognizes companies for integrating environmental considerations into the design and development of products in order to reduce their carbon footprint. Awarded the PEFC certificate which recognizes that Prodema only uses woods originating from managed forests. Prodema is also a contributor to a significant amount of point in qualifying for LEED. The structure of Relativity Residence is made from Fly Ash Concrete. Fly Ash is an environmentally friendly system that replaces Portland cement for fly ash, producing a system that exceeds specified standards. Properties such as Increased strength and decreased permeability and reduced alkali silica reactivity brings advantages to the physical side of the project. Properties such as reduced bleeding is and advantage to the environment; fewer bleed channels decreases chemical attack which in turn provides less leaks into the environment. Fly Ash concrete is also a contributor to LEED points. Windows play an important role in the design of a green building as it highly impacts the energy efficiency. Considering the climate of Canada, and the orientation of the building, many considerations were taken in designing the windows. LiteZone a product that address the issues of traditional windows on the environment, was given the 2016 Green Building Product of the Year Award. This product embraces the need for thicker insulating glass which allows higher thermal values. This is achieved by the multiple films between the exterior and interior glazing and can result in a R value as high as R17.This product was implemented in the Relativity Residence and can be used towards LEED points. Reclaimed wood is another approach in designing a sustainable building. Taking recycled wood from local distributers can contribute to LEED points. The use of reclaimed wood helps lower the need to cut down more trees and in construction result in far fewer materials sent to the land fill. On a whole reclaimed wood helps the environment and lets the occupants know that.Part Two: EnergyBuilding Integrated PhotovoltaicPhotovoltaic material is used on buildings to replace parts such as roofs, skylights or exterior façade. This technology is converts sunlight into direct electricitywhich can be used to power equipment in the building. The starting cost of implementing this technology can be very high in the beginning but will be made upfor with the amount of energy and cost saved from the implementation of photovoltaics as well as the amount spent on the materials and labour that would berequired instead.The four main types of BIPV products are Crystalline Silicon solar panels, Amorphous Crystalline Silicon, Copper Indium Gallium Selenide and Double Glass solarpanels. Crystalline Silicon solar panels, which are mostly found on roof tops, Amorphous Crystalline Silicon which are thin film solar PV which can found oncurtain wall systems or used as transparent skylight , and Copper Indium Gallium Selenide which is a thin film cells.Under the full sun, the crystalline silicon brings in about 10 -12 watts per ft2 of PV array, while the thin film cells bring in about 4 – 5 watts per ft2 of PV array.These BIPV can also be incorporated into the awnings. By doing this, there will be additional benefits such as passive shading to increase the sustainability ofthe building. These products are produced in Southern Ontario by Dynamic Solar Tech. They provide BIPV and stand alone solar panels as well. By working with alocal company, there is a great opportunity to build and increase the amount of sustainability while reducing the amount of carbon emission.High Performance Glazing AssembliesHigh Performance Glazing Assemblies mostly know as insulated glazing or double panel, consist of two to three glass panels with a vacuum in between them.This reduces the amount of heat that is transferred to the exterior of the building. This thickness of the glass can range from 3mm to 100mm or can depend onthe use of the design of the building. This thickness of the glass will also vary depending on the application such as whether it is used to reduce acoustics or forsecurity and privacy reasons as well.Glazing assemblies will continue to improve as we start learning new and more innovated ways. With new technology, these glazing systems will benefit from theway we control daylighting and improve the climate control in the building. This will create a better environment for the occupants, whether they live there orare just stopping at the café. A lot of energy is saved, thus bring down cost of running the building. This will also help in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.A manufacturer for High Performance Glazing Assemblies is a company called BVGlazing Systems. With experience in the business for 60 years, this companyproduces windows and glazing systems for different types of structures and a variety of curtain walls and custom projects. Our building has a large amount ofglazing, this will be a great way to improve our sustainability and build an energy efficient building. By controlling the daylighting, with lower solar heat gain, theartist or tenants living in the building will be living is a much better and more comfortable environment.Solar Hot Water SystemsSolar Hot Water Systems transfer heat that is gained from the sun and send it to the water. This water is then stored in tanks and used when needed. This is areliable system requiring very low maintenance because of the few moving parts required. The solar water heating systems consist of the collector, a heattransfer system, heat exchanger, pumps, hot water storage and the controls. These systems can also assist in space heating if hydronic heating systems areused. After adding this system, hot water utility bills are brought down. This system also helps the environment by reducing emissions caused by fuel waterheaters.A company that can provide the requirements to solar hot water systems is Boss Solar located in Toronto. After being in the business for 20 years, thiscompany claims to provide 70% of a tenant’s annual hot water needs at a sensible price. Providing products of the highest quality and thus helping save theenvironment.
