While with Paul Merrick Architects Ltd
Role: Project and Design Architect

Developed for the Kerkhoff Development Corporation, this novel masterplan was conceived of as an island community of 1,200 people with complete municipal support services and facilities ranging from schools to community centre and theater, gulf course, equestrian centre, parks and marina. Located in the Fraser River in Surrey, BC, this project supported a range of urban style town homes and single family residences. As part of the town core the plan supported light water front industrial studios for cottage industries along the marina water front and provided preserved ecological wetland parks.
