T3 Mount Pleasant SFU Annex

Proscenium is excited to be providing Associate Architectural Services to DLR Group for T3 Mount Pleasant, a new 12-storey mass timber building in Mount Pleasant. The project joins other Hines T3 buildings around the world named for their use of mass timber, technology and close proximity to transit.

Our firm’s involvement focuses on the relocation and revitalization of the existing 1929 Simon Fraser Elementary Annex heritage building on the site. The proposal lifts the heritage building onto a reconstructed, at-grade ground floor anchoring the northeast corner of the site and fronting onto a lane activated by murals by local artists. The reconstruction at grade along with a new dedicated elevator will allow the plaza to provide equitable and accessible circulation throughout the Annex.

Volvo Richmond

Proscenium is working with Dilawri Group to design a new Volvo dealership located in Richmond, BC. The project includes renovation of an existing dealership into a refreshed commercial/retail facility with offices and a service bay component. The Volvo dealership is Proscenium’s fifth project for Dilawri Group.

Proscenium is working closely with the brand designers and Volvo’s corporate guide to apply Volvo’s latest corporate image following a recent re-branding. This boutique renovation will result in the first North American dealership to reflect Volvo’s latest image.

Chard Office

Proscenium is pleased to be designing a new office for Chard Development, a long-time client of our firm. The project includes a tenant improvement of an entire floor of the commercial tower at 510 Burrard Street, Vancouver. Our interior design team envisioned a bright, open office for the company of over fifty staff.

Proscenium’s design includes flexible, open workstations to accommodate the growing Chard team. Visitors are greeted by a feature wood-slat wall that extends over the ceiling of a community table—conceived as a central space to promote collaboration between staff and with clients. Exposed ceilings add height and interest, and a large boardroom placed strategically at the corner of the angular base building allows for expansive wrap-around views. A clean, sophisticated colour pallet reflects the Chard brand.

Subaru Borden Street

Proscenium is working with Dilawri Group to design a new Subaru dealership located in Vancouver, BC. The project is a multilevel building that includes a commercial/retail facility, offices and a service bay component. Proscenium is working cooperatively with the brand designers to create a contemporary design that fulfills the client’s requirements.

Proscenium has worked with Dilawri Group for several years and this is our fourth major project with the company.

Lower Capilano

This new mixed-use development for Chard Development is located in the Lower Capilano area of North Vancouver.

It also includes a 12-storey hotel tower with 140 guest rooms and four rental townhomes.

The project was approved by Urban Design Panel in December, 2021 and is in the design stage.
