Whistler, BC

27,000 sq.ft.


This development housed Olympic athletes during the 2010 Games and was then converted into employee/resident housing. The challenge was to meet  specific VANOC housing requirements, while ensuring that the design would convert efficiently into single-family units. The duplex and fourplex configurations are contemporary designs that offer a new design style for the Whistler employee housing market.  The design is cost-efficient, with thoughtful attention to detail, making the homes attractive and practical for mountain living. This project involved working with several committees including VANOC, Whistler Housing Authority, Resort Municipality of Whistler, and the Whistler 2020 Development Corporation board.
