Barrie’s Newest Landmark Art
The City of Barrie is a recipient of another piece of incredible landmark art from an award-winning artist, Aylan Couchie. Aylan is the winner of Pratt Homes’ art competition that will have her submission H.I.O Big Chiefs installed 70 feet in the air on top of a 6 storey condo building at 300 Essa Rd looking over the city of Barrie.
H.I.O Big Chiefs will be a landmark at Pratt Homes’ newest community, The Gallery Condominiums.
Pratt Homes’ new community is defined by art culture. The goal for the brand and the community is to be the definition of “A Work of Art”. When we asked the Marketing Director Todd Palmer, he mentioned, “that statement has inspired everything.
Our sales office resembles an art gallery, our outdoor and print ads will look like an art exhibit — not just sales material, and even the buildings will be named after art galleries from around the world.”
Pratt Homes went as far as commissioning a fine arts photographer and a cinematographer to capture the city of Barrie in a unique and artistic light.
The Gallery Condominiums is an enticing community for other reasons beyond the commitment to being a work of art.
This site will have Barrie’s first rooftop patio for residents to enjoy the incredible views of the city and is situated right in front of a large parcel of forested area that Pratt Homes will turn into a public park with walking trails, ponds and look out areas. It’s the perfect backyard!
The grand opening at The Gallery Condominiums is Saturday October 17th. Register at www.thegallerybarrie.com for a sneak preview and to check out Aylan Couchie’s winning art submission.
