Interior Design & Finishings

  • modern, sliding birch veneer door that adds to the overall appeal of the interior design nicely.


  • Bathrooms are clean-cut and contemporary with lots of storage space, a must in any modern day condo.
  • A spacious glass walled shower with a rain-shower shower head, custom vanity with two decent sized drawers and bottom shelf make you feel like you are at the spa!
  • Sustainability is also a characteristic of FIRST, where water saving toilets is standard.


  • FRAM+Slokker are keen on giving their customers choice. There are three different concepts used in the kitchens at FIRST.
  • Modern cabinetry with a textured, shiny finish creates compatibility with your chosen decor and isn’t limited to one color template.
  • A custom-built island seats four with bonus storage cabinets matches the wood grain laminate and cabinets nicely and if necessary can be pushed to the side for more space, an awesome feature for when hosting your family and friends!
  • Stainless steel, Energy-Star appliances come standard at FIRST, and are a nice finishing touch.

Living Areas

  • More choice! You decide on one whichever color template suites you; Jazz, Rock or Blues.
  • Each palette uses natural textures and colours which emulate FIRST’s wonderful downtown riverside location in Calgary.
  • Each template is flexible enough to allow for easy mix and matching with your preferred interior decor.
