The annual SEGD Global Design Awards Program was established in 1987 to recognise the highest standards in environmental graphic design. Our studio was awarded the 2013 Global Design Awards | Merit this spring in San Francisco. A big thank you to the SEGD for having us.
Each year, Western Living Magazine hosts the Designers of the Year competition to award designers who demonstrate a breakthrough year of innovation and impact on Western Canada. PUBLIC is pleased to be chosen as the recipient of this year’s Arthur Erickson Memorial Award for emerging architectural talent. We’re looking forward to celebrating with our amazing clients and partners—you know who you are—and all the other award winners.
Just in time for summer, PUBLIC recently completed this day use facility at Centennial Beach. The new building contains support services for Boundary Bay Regional Park, washrooms, and a concession stand that offers more than just fresh fish and chips! Designed to take advantage of solar gain for heat in the winter, the deep south overhang also encourages passive cooling in the summer. Smart design of mechanical systems means this building can have the greatest impact on reducing energy use.
