Jamieson Place is a 38-storey office tower with ground-floor retail space, a conference centre and a fitness centre. This LEED Gold-certified building was constructed on an urban infill in the heart of Calgary.

The overriding architectural motif is in Frank Lloyd Wright’s prairie style utilizing a contemporary material palette and color. Wright’s sculptural prairie-style columns inspire the tower massing, whereas the podium, winter garden and +15 bridges are inspired by Wright’s stained-glass motifs.

As seen from the East & West Elevations, the tower portion is articulated with a single-storey recess that defines the tower massing into two distinct and stacked boxes. Visual interest on the facades includes two-storey sky gardens that act as urban-scale lanterns at night.
