The Post

The Post

Covering a full city block, the Post on Georgia is the largest heritage revitalization project in British Columbia. The former Main Post Office building, an International Style landmark in Vancouver, is reimagined as a centrepiece for the growing downtown community with high tech office space, restaurants, retail, and a new public plaza. Two new office towers create a contemporary extension of the existing building while being respectful of the existing heritage elements.
Within the existing heritage structure, the development provides two levels of underground parking, retail opportunities on the first four levels, and office and parking above in the top three levels. The towers above are articulated to establish a formal relationship with the base and surrounding context, while a contrasting material palette distinguishes old and new. Each elevation has a distinct identity using solar shades and window detailing to echo proportions of the heritage façade and develop a visual hierarchy of scales.

King George Hub

King George Hub

King George HUB at the Station is a substantial site at a pivotal location at the intersection of King George Boulevard and Fraser Highway in Surrey. CCS is anchored at the site’s highest profile adjacent to the transit hub, CCS plaza and the retail high street. King George Station will be developed in 3 phases over the next several years.  
The development will feature two residential towers (738 units), a large format retailer, food and drug, service retailers, and restaurants. It will capitalize on the many and varied transit users, access by car, office users and adjacent residential. CCS plaza will be animated by restaurants/food service and provide access and respite for both transit users and office workers. Pedestrian access and connectivity with adjacent properties, street and public transit is a priority.

155 Water Street

155 Water Street

155 Water Street is a 7 storey boutique building in the heart of Gastown. 155 Water Street combines two historic sites, the old Harper Warehouse and BC Plate Glass & Importing Co. Due to the historic significance of these two buildings the new design retains the two historical facades fronting Water Street.
On the east façade, within a private breezeway, the profile of one of the historic buildings is reconstructed using salvage bricks. The design of the new building is an elegant steel and glass structure giving the new design a contemporary and modern industrial feel. The bases of the project consist of retail on the ground floor accessed off Water Street with the remaining storeys dedicated to office use. The building has an outdoor rooftop amenity space that has 360-degree views of the north shore, downtown and Gastown. This project is targeting Leed Gold Certification.

625 West Hastings

625 West Hastings

The proposed development is a 150,611 SF, 30-storey office building with 2 levels of below-grade parking, accessed by two vehicle elevators. The massing conforms to the heights of the site’s view cone parameters. The office tower is broken down into three equal parts that gradually recess and relate to the proportions of the adjacent heritage Royal Bank building. Pattern and articulation are created on the façade by the varying depths of vertical fins. Clear anodized aluminum extrusions provide contrast and detail while maintaining a connection to the existing heritage façade and floor levels. The structure of the new office will create a unique opportunity to design a new lateral loading resisting system that can support both buildings while providing a seismic upgrade to the Royal Bank.

The proposed building plays its part in completing the streetscape along Hastings Street while maintaining its own unique quality.

550 Cambie Street

550 Cambie Street

The project site is located mid-block on Cambie Street between Dunsmuir and Pender Streets in the Crosstown neighborhood of Vancouver and within the Central Business District (CBD) Extension area.  The proposed development is a 264,009 sqft and 22-storey office building providing approximately 258,245 sqft of office space with 5,764 sqft of retail at grade.

The building‘s architectural expression is a sculpted form achieved by a process of subtraction in response to contextual constraints. What meets the ground as a rectangular form is transformed through a terraced low rise base, angular high rise tower form to create a ‘crystalline’ building that addresses the site and its relation to nearby Victory Square. The building form is driven by a deep recognition of the significance of Victory Square throughout the entire calendar year. Sculpting the upper portion of the building yields a building form that balances the generation of job space with the preservation of the quality of space within Victory Square. The resultant volume is broken down into various components through massing and façade articulation in order to relate to context and produce legible architecture. These components can be organized into three elements: base, low-rise, and tower.  The unique façade expression is informed by both the building’s historical context and performative building envelope design. The texture created on the façade responds to fenestration qualities found within the retained Cleland-Kent building façade in addition to buildings within the immediate context of Crosstown, Gastown, and Chinatown.

220 Prior Street

220 Prior Street

The project site is located at the Prior and Station Street, 220 Prior Street. At the northwest corner of the future St.Paul’s Hospital site, this will be the first medical building in the Healthcare Precinct in the FLATS district. The program calls for 100,00 sf of strata medical office, industrial and retail uses. Keltic’s development is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own office space steps from the new St. Paul’s Hospital and Health Campus, the most innovative delivery of integrated care in B.C. and Canada. This strata office project is the ultimate convenience for medical professionals.
The building is conceived as a marker, a buoy. The location of the site sits on the shoreline of the eastern half of the false creek before being filled in for development in 1914 for the National Pacific Railway.  This point of intersection has historical significance that needs to be acknowledged. The investigation of form progressed in a series of proto-type studies, first through a simple form, informed by the industrial set-backs. Applying thoughts of medical instruments to this notion of a buoy. The question of how to express the history of industry and blend with a place for healing (in a western sense).  The future of this area will bring down the viaducts and create a new context across this medical campus. Residence and medicine across the street from each other.  Industrial colors don’t only come in black.

First West Credit Union

First West Credit Union

This 6 storey building concept with average 20,000sf floors fulfils the spatial and technical needs of the First West Credit Union with a superior workspace that is highly visible at an important junction in Langley: 200th St. and Hwy. 1. It is a comfortable, functional and efficient workspace with amenities that is an architectural statement but is also a building with meaning that promotes “pride of place”. 
Credit Unions embody the moral of one of Aesop’s Fables (600BC): “strength in unity.” This building is composed of slightly different linear forms that are bundled together to represent a stronger unified form. This concept recalls the metaphor Aesop used: “this bundle of sticks you cannot break, take them singly, with ease, you may break as you please”.
