Bringing a fresh and distinctive design solution to a thriving physiotherapy practice.


Centrally located on an upgraded and highly visible transit corridor, this extensive renovation and addition to a 1950 bank building was designed to provide a new location for an active and successful integrated health practice. With a modest budget and restrictive schedule, Cascadia Architects led an integrated design and construction team to develop a simple, elegant solution highly reliant on strong massing and delicate facade treatment.
