Location: Sanderson Way, Burnaby, BC
Client: Electronic Arts
Architect: Gustavson Wylie Architects (GWA)
Consultants: WSP - Structural and Building Envelope
This project involved the renovation of the existing Electronic Arts Building in Burnaby with a new building envelope. The design of the new building envelope creates a grand approach to entering the building. The building is situated on a site surrounded by trees in a quickly developing and expanding area. The design was determined by three governing factors: (1) the need to complement the site surrounding nature (2) considering materials (3) the existing building programming for electronic game design.
Our design responds to these determinants directly by adding the additional masonry wall. The design compliments its surroundings through the use of texturing, layering and stone, wood and metal materials.
