HIGHLAND PARK – II12469 191 B Street, Pitt Meadows, BC
Highland Park – Phase II is a five-storey multi-family residential building in the Town Centre of Pitt Meadows. The project is the second phase of the adjacent property to the west – Highland Park Residences. Due to the size limitations of the site, Phase II shares parking access with the existing development as well as exterior amenity space. The design responds to developing urban character of Pitt Meadows Town Centre with contemporary West Coast architecture addressing at the same time the residential character of the neighbourhood to the South.
The main entrance to the building is clearly highlighted using a series of linear wood elements, a common theme throughout the building design. Above the entry, a tall glazed element brings natural lighting into common spaces and corridors at each level, contrasted with brick clad-feature wall beside the entry. Each building facade responds accordingly to its siting. The East to the urban conditions. The South, open to the greatest amount of solar exposure, has been designed with large reaching overhangs, and a full length of balconies to reduce solar heat gain. In addition, units are provided with moveable screens that diffuse the light, provide privacy from the existing development, as well as create a dynamic facade constantly changing. The North elevation continues the horizontality and materiality found on the South elevation.
