The design for the Louie’s Building facade renovation draws inspiration from steampunk, where metal gears and other intricate mechanisms are exposed. Metal structural members that are painted black, outline the top section of the facade with exposed connection bolts. Dark wooden vertical and horizontal slats fill the space in between. Custom light fixtures along the front facade reference the gas lanterns found in historic cities.
Currently under construction, this facade upgrade to a centrally located building will help transform the streetscape of a busy downtown neighbourhood, creating a more friendly, walkable environment.
