The Dock Building has won an international Architecture, Construction and Design Award in the Commercial category, selected from over 400 entries originating in more than 40 countries.
This new dock building serves a large marina of sailboats on Jericho Beach. Facilities include offices, teaching space for children, washrooms and showers and a variety of workshops. The project’s practical working needs, very modest budget, and prominent site required a simple solution that honoured the cannery and industrial heritage of waterfront buildings that were once found on the site a half-century before.
The success of the finished building demonstrates our belief that all projects regardless of budget or function can and should create an elegant, playful and meaningful new space for the community.
