The condominiums on McDonald Drive have become an iconic building in Yellownkife’s Old Town neighbourhood.  The project includes eight units that are relatively simple but also very warm and insular. The building is situated on a rock outcrop overlooking Yellowknife Bay, with the rock penetrating into the interior of many of the units. The natural quality of the site is reflected in the zinc sheet siding and the interior material palette. Each residence is an oasis of calm where natural light, views toward Bay, and warm, light coloured materials provide a cozy and intimate environment.
