How do we create a new energy and prominence for an important civic facility?
The challenge on this project was in creating a prominence where none existed before. Ratio challenged Pitt Meadows to expand their thinking about the purpose and focus of the facility. Our design sought to engage more building frontage, creating a new and more consistent civic focus for the formerly uninspiring recreation centre.
The result is a remarkably bright, open and emphatic west elevation that connects the new addition to the rest of the building and announces the recreation centre to the public. The modernized and expanded weight and fitness rooms and Community Police office serve important functions within this newly energized facility.
