We strive to create vibrant spaces for people.
Matrix has a 28 year history of delivering projects in Calgary and the surrounding region. We've featured a some of our recent work below:
CALGARY CITY CENTRE, PHASE 1
Client: The Cadillac Fairview Corporation Limited
Calgary City Centre Phase 1 contributes to the positive evolution of Calgary’s downtown as a dynamic and appealing place to live and work.
The building includes green roofs and plaza level landscaping. By using a combination of native and adaptive species, as well as mulch for trees and shrubs (to prevent water loss from evaporation), the building has been able to eliminate the need for any irrigation water.
The Oxford-Wexford mixed-use project is a new development on the eastern edge of Calgary’s Beltline area.
The vision for the neighbourhood, as set out in the City’s Beltline Plan, is to become “an authentic, livable and diverse, high-density urban community.” In response, the landscape design features extensive public spaces and amenities.
BOW VALLEY SQUARE REVITALIZATION
Client: Oxford Properties Group
As part of the renovations to Bow Valley Square, Matrix designed an intensive green roof at the +30 Level and a pocket park at grade.
The small pocket park at grade on 6th Avenue SW creates a welcome green oasis in the City’s urban fabric. It is used by the general public passing by on sidewalk or as an outdoor amenity for the +15 food court with direct stair access. In addition to creating a warm, pedestrian-friendly environment, the green roof provides improved stormwater management.
THE SHORE MIXED-USE
Client: Rise Developments
Across the street from the popular Gyro Beach in Kelowna, this development takes full advantage from the nearby vibrant street corner.
The proximity of the beach naturally led the design to provide plenty of on-site open space for café and restaurant patios. Fitted with a breezeway, all parking is tucked away underneath the building at the rear of the site, making the pedestrian realm an organizing principle.
Client: Athena Resources
The design of the two private rooftop in patios include exterior fireplaces and water features amongst the soft landscaping. Our design enhances the outdoor spaces which provide views of both the City of Calgary and the mountains.
