Conradi Building

 

Tofino, BC, 2005
 
$1.6 Million – 29,000 sq.ft.

Office spaces, restaurant on the main level, and residential units above are combined in this building which achieves the difficult task of sitting comfortably on a sloping corner site.  Creative landscaping forms a petite public space at the corner with an outdoor fireplace that invites people to linger.  Muted colours and natural materials including wood, concrete and stone are appropriate to the rugged west-coast context.  The restaurant and residential units feature views to Clayoquot Sound.
