Portsmouth Professional Building
Embedded along the edge of a residential community, the Portsmouth Professional Building is phase two of the business development. Set back from the street, the Portsmouth Professional Building offers offers three levels of office space to the neighbourhood catering to doctors and other professionals.
While responding to the site in an individual manner, the buildings share many of the same details and material attributes to create a sense of continuity as users navigate their way through the site. The rear of the site integrates a series of bioswales into the parking area, with the intent of adding porosity to the hardscape. A change of material demarks the pedestrian path that weaves from the front to the rear of the site, linking both buildings with the street.
Location: Nanaimo, BC
