Cypress Village Master Plan
Vancouver, British Columbia | 2015-Present
We had the opportunity to develop a new community from scratch in a stunning mountainside environment, spirited and informed by its context and the adventurous, outdoor residents who will eventually live there.
We knit the outdoor recreation fabric of the neighbourhood’s surroundings throughout our design, creating a home base for the community’s inhabitants who are coming to and from exploring Cypress Mountain.
We found ways to weave sustainability throughout the community, defining the building parcels according to where we could capture rainwater. We organized public space around the building forms and integrated existing creeks, river systems, and wetlands into the design.
