Proscenium to work with MEC creating a new flagship store
MEC has begun the process to create a new flagship store in the Vancouver Olympic Village by mid-2018. The store 45,000 sq. ft. store will be located at 2nd Avenue and Quebec Street, just steps away from the Seawall.
The building will target LEED Gold certification and feature an undulating green roof that will capture rain run off.
Private Residence House Progress
Our project for a private residence here in Vancouver is coming along.
The front of the house has been finished in stucco and composite panels. There will be a cedar screen in front of the Master Bedroom window that will be able to slip open for more daylight or be closed for more privacy. The Living room window will have a translucent film applied to its lower 4′ for visual privacy while still allowing in daylight.
