The Sovereign

The Sovereign is a modern 51 unit high-end residential building inserted in the sensitive heritage context of Old Town Victoria.
It employs the Edwardian Commercial massing of adjacent buildings base, shaft, and cap with similar materials, brick and stone but are distinguished as modern by the alternating window pattern which leaves corners open (something that could not be done 100 years ago). It is a subtle addition to Old Town that fits in scale and detail. Retail animates the pedestrian context at the ground while parking is achieved above and below ground on this limited site by employing car elevators for access.
