Equitable Washroom Review

Various

Equitable washroom, change room, and locker room facilities are an important and widespread initiative across municipalities in BC. A series of simultaneous studies are underway to assess and prioritizes actions needed to improve gender equity and accessibility for a diverse public and workforce. Watch for these seeds to take root in our future projects.


Dilworth Mountain Childcare Centre

Kelowna, BC

Designed and built to Passive House standards, this “three house” concept childcare centre ensures a healthy environment for Kelowna kids. Plus it’s cute as a button.


Queen's Park Sportsplex

New Westminster, BC

Replacing the Arenex, a well loved multi-sport facility that had become unsafe for use, the Queen’s Park Sportsplex became the City’s first CaGBC Net Carbon Zero project. You can still find the memories of the Arenex in the reclaimed timbers used at the entry and reception.

Moodyville Park Building

North Vancouver, BC

A crown jewel in North Vancouver’s park system, Moodyville Park has it all – a pumptrack, terraced playground, epic views, and the Trans Canada Trail. Together with PFS Studio, we dropped a pavilion/folly into the mix to allow everyone to enjoy the park a little more comfortably.


Town Centre Park Washroom

Coquitlam, BC

Anchoring an expansion to Town Centre Park, this amenity building provides much needed washroom facilities as well as a location to get hot chocolate when it’s cold and ice cream when it’s warm – literally everything anyone ever really needs at a park.


City of Vancouver CityLab

Vancouver, BC

511 West Broadway – CityLab – was the City of Vancouver’s primary public engagement touchpoint and is a reimagining of how public engagement happens. Part coworking lab, part engagement space, CityLab daylit the mechanics of the City’s work by inviting the public in. Plus there was a pixelated pin-up wall, a fully custom-designed feature.

Translink Bike Parkades

All Over The Lower Mainland, BC

After we completed Translink’s flagship bike parkade in Surrey, we were asked to design and oversee the construction of Translink’s modular prototype bike shelters. Suitable for any circumstance, durable AF, transparent, and expandable, Translink’s Bike Parkades are a statement about the future: hopeful and ambitious.

Meadow Park Fitness Expansion

Whistler, BC

The culmination of a 2013 study by Carscadden and catalysed by the generosity of a Whistler resident, the MPSC Fitness Expansion capitalizes on the singular views offered by Whistler and the latent structural capacity of the existing facility.

South Surrey Operations Centre

Surrey, BC

Designed to straddle the demands of dirty boots and business casual sneakers, the SSOC is the kind of place where the messy work of city making really happens. The building is durable in the extreme and easy on the eyes. But the cleverest thing about the building is the siting strategy, which deftly conjures a public park from a gravel parking lot.

Prairie Winds Park

Calgary, AB

Canada’s largest outdoor wading pool is actually only one actor in a 14 hectare park which animates Calgary’s Northeast. Along with renovated and expanded change rooms, the pool is a critical asset for the community during Calgary’s occasionally blistering, if comparatively brief, summers. (With space2place)
