RADIUS COOKING UP SOMETHING TASTY
Bucci Developments’ junior suites make kitchen the focal point for owners and guests alike
When a main feature of a home serves not only its function, but enhances the lived experience, it’s a sign of the well designed.
The A1 floor plan at Bucci Developments’ Radius puts its attractive kitchen face first.
The U-shaped space opens up in this apartment-style unit with a clean, light composite stone counter framed by dark cabinetry. Guests can lounge with a glass of wine at the extended eating bar on the peninsula chatting with the host as the final touches of a meal are brought together.
A gas range and stainless-steel appliances complete the functions.
Of the two show suites at Radius — a 201-unit, seven-storey building — the A1 is the smaller unit at 831 square feet.
This junior two-bedroom, twobathroom unit has convenience built right in. The second bedroom comes with a fold-down, Murphy-style bed. When it’s down, it’s a convenient and comfortable place for guests to stay; when it’s up, the desk and shelves can serve as a home office.
The master bedroom, with large windows for natural light, is a quiet oasis.
The walk-through closet features storage on both sides with racks and shelves.
The master ensuite offers a spalike atmosphere with a stylish stand-alone tub, glass-enclosed shower and motion-detected lighting on the vanity’s kickboard for night-time visits. It also offers thoughtful design with extra storage along the ceiling line above the vanity and toilet.
The great room extends outdoors with a patio or deck.
The unit offers room for a dining table between the living room and kitchen.
The second bedroom, storage room and main bathroom are located near the unit’s entrance.
Beyond the comforts of this condo, the building offers underground heated parking with a dog wash and bicycle stalls, a fitness facility for spin, yoga, cardio and weight training, a rooftop patio and a bike/ski/snowboard service room.
Radius is also a green building, built to LEED silver equivalency and crowned with a host of solar panels. Its passive solar design makes the most of the sun’s warmth.
The building is located about a two-minute walk from the Bridgeland CTrain station and is one block from Bridgeland’s main street with its many shops, restaurants and services.
Across the street is the community centre and Murdoch Park, which includes a brick wall commemorating the area’s history as the former site of the Calgary General Hospital.
Radius is scheduled for completion in 2019.
Guests visiting Bucci Developments’ A1 floor plan at Radius in Bridgeland can elbow up to the extended eating bar or stretch their legs in the dining area.
There is a spacious storage and laundry room included in the two-bedroom unit’s 831-square-foot layout. Other amenities include heated underground parking.
The master ensuite has a stand-alone tub, glass-enclosed shower and motion-detected lighting to create a spa-like atmosphere.
The great room, which extends toward an outdoor patio or deck, includes enough space for a dining room setup near the kitchen.
The kitchen features a gas range and stainless-steel appliances to complement the dark cabinetry.
The main bathroom is located close to the entrance, along with the second bedroom and storage room.
