Creating a meaningful connection between work and leisureB+H Architects | Oxford Properties Group Wayfinding | Masterplanning | Placemaking | Signage Design
Situated just north of downtown Calgary, Eau Claire Tower is a mixed-use office development connected to Calgary’s extensive Plus 15 pedestrian walking network. As both a destination and a hub, the building presented unique navigation challenges for various audience types. Forge engaged with B+H Architects to develop wayfinding with a clear path to destination upon arrival while accommodating multi-modal access to the property. Placemaking and narrative theming became important schemes to provide a distinct identity for the building and to strengthen wayfinding.
Inspiration from reflections above.
The resulting wayfinding design integrates seamlessly into the building, providing visibility for key tenants and intuitive orientation for time-pressed employees and the general public alike. Eau Claire Tower has become a distinctive beacon and essential connection for an up-and-coming neighbourhood.
