Cornerstone Office Building

A cost effective and expressive design in Squamish, BC

Concrete, glass and wood are the main materials of this building. This simple, contemporary combination of structure and finish enabled the project to be built quickly and at a low budget. Timber beams, rafters and wood soffit are used to maximum effect at the dynamic top floor roof. Locally quarried basalt stone is provided at the ground floor sidewalk level. Large vertical planes of cedar siding and slats complete the building’s west coast contemporary character while creating a defining landmark in downtown Squamish.
