The Residences at the Ritz

Toronto, Canada

Project led by an Entuitive expert while employed at a previous firm. Located in Toronto’s downtown core, the 53-storey Residences at the Ritz-Carlton and Ritz-Carlton Hotel contain a 20-storey, five-star hotel and 33 storeys of condominium space and related amenities directly above. The tower’s striking, chiseled profile stands out within the Toronto skyline with its south wall gradually sloping out and reaching upward.

Challenge
Simplify construction and reduce the cost of the structural glass bridge that serves as the hotel lobby’s centrepiece.
Solution
 Ordinarily, a glass bridge involves a series of connecting glass sections to form a load-bearing balustrade, but the need to save time and reduce construction costs prevented us from using this design option. We sourced a glazing manufacturer in Switzerland that produced a tempered-laminated glass balustrade in one piece, spanning the lobby’s nine-metre width. The resulting bridge is an all-glass structure in its purest form, with the unique look of a floating glass skywalk.
