Project: Project: Marine Drive, West Vancouver (project architect with KGA Inc prime consultant)
A prominent site on Marine Drive in West Vancouver was the starting point for this 16,000 sq ft mixed use commercial building. The building design was guided by ‘passive design’ principles, to take full advantage of free energy from the sun for heating and daylighting, and wind for natural ventilation. We also focused on designing a rich pedestrian experience at the street level: a mid-block arcade allows access to a sunny patio with spectacular views over the oceon; the material palette is exposed timbers, wood siding, and natural stone; and extensive canopies and awnings keep pedestrians happy in all weather.
