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”.
