Architect and team

Marmol Radziner was the architecture firm in charge of the architectural design, in association with LARGE Architecture.

Marmol Radziner was in charge of the architectural design, however, architecture is a complex discipline involving many professionals from different fields, without whom this building would have not been possible. We will surely be leaving out a lot of names here, but here is a list of the people we do know also played their part in making the The Beaudry Tower a reality:

  • Brookfield Properties as the Main Contractor
  • Brookfield Properties as the Main Developer

Architectural Style

The The Beaudry Tower can be categorized as a Contemporary building.

Contemporary style architecture builds on top of the principles of Modernism and Postmodernism, but incorporates other variables which might not have been that important in the past, but certainly are today, such as technology, sustainability, inclusivity, and others.

From a historical point of view, it is hard to categorize things from a not-so-distant time, and therefore we choose to categorize most buildings built after the year 2000 as "Contemporary". It is possible that as time goes by and we, as a society, gain perspective on the things happening today, we'll be able to look back and recategorize all these buildings into more concrete subsections, some of which might not even exist today.

That being said, and even thought being a contemporary building, probably taking advantage of modern materials, construction techniques, and technology, the design of the The Beaudry Tower is inspired by the modern style.

Materials & Structure

The The Beaudry Tower uses a frame structure made of steel columns and concrete, steel slabs.

A frame structure uses a combination of beams and columns to sustain the building's weight. The walls in this case are non-load bearing, which allows for more flexibility when distributing the interior spaces.

The facade is non-load bearing either, as it is common in frame structure type buildings.

From an aesthetic point of view, the facade features dark-glass floor-to-ceiling curtain wall. The corner units have balconies.

The parking is located on an adjacent structure.

Another material found at the The Beaudry Tower is wood, seen in the walls and ceiling of the double-height lobby .
