Project Title: Kirkwood Mews

Project Type: Retail Strip

Project Size: 12,000 ft²

Location: Charlottetown, PE.

Completion: 2017

Description:

The existing Kirkwood Mews I building, located on University Avenue in Charlestown, will soon be accompanied by a new sister building adjacent. This more contemporary retail strip has been designed to carry some variation in its façade in an attempt to suggest a streetscape-like feel with a touch of individuality from shop to shop. The building is a composition of stone, metal siding and faux-wood paneling. A full building energy model was also conducted to decipher the most economic and energy efficient investment that could be made into the envelope design. Based on its north-facing orientation, it was determined that increased under-slab insulation and energy-efficient glazing would provide the most eco-effective investment.
