The Kitsilano Coast Guard Station required an envelope upgrade to withstand a renewed lifecycle in a high-profile exposed marine setting. RATIO’s design plan will deliver a functional, robust and aesthetic upgrade required to meet the goals of the Canadian Coast Guard. 


Getting in the spirit of the season; kids & crafts

Recently,  members of the RATIO team joined other companies and their staff from the Architecture and Interior Design community to create a holiday crafting event for children. Over 250 kids participated; the room was buzzing with creativity in the tw0-hour event.

RATIO participated with teams from BYU Design, CEI / HDR, Contemporary Office Interiors, DWR, Herman Miller, Kasian,  NLA, Omicron, Perkins+Will,  Smart Design Group, SSDG, Stantec and  ZAS.  Each team supplied the materials and set up a craft station where children took turns making crafts.  It’s always as much fun for us as it is the kids!

From all of us at RATIO, we hope you have some time to re-charge over the holidays and have fun with family and friends!
