GENTLY FORMED BRASS

The Shane Homes YMCA at Rocky Ridge is a regional hub of physical activity and a multipurpose gathering space for diverse community and arts programs as well as health and wellness opportunities. Shane Homes YMCA is situated in the North West corner of Calgary, Alberta (CA). Conceived as a low, horizontal form stitched into the landscape, the building expresses and captures the rolling prairie landscape of the Alberta Foothills before entering the Rocky Mountains.

TECU® Brass was chosen for the shimmering brass shingle facade. As designers GEC Architecture says: “We were interested in a material that would develop real depth of colours and would naturally patinate and change over time. Brass proved to have just the right colour range throughout the patination process. And, essentially, brass is beautiful.”
