Located in Vancouver’s iconic Stanley Park, Prospect Point has been hosting visitors and locals alike to marvel at its unrivalled views for over 125 years.

 

With falling revenue and aging facilities, the property was acquired by the Capilano Group in 2014 who approached Grout McTavish Architects to help develop a program and architectural approach to re-establish the buildings prominence with the park.

 

After an extensive investigation into the building’s condition the Grout McTavish Team developed a comprehensive strategy to replace and reconfigure large portions of the building in order to create a West Coast inspired venue that stays true to its rich history while also presenting magnificent views of the North Shore mountains and local landmark, the Lions Gate Bridge.

 

Voted a must-see destination by Visitors, the architecture was designed to create a prominent terrace to the parks northern flank featuring large timber trellis’, ample glazing and large public seating areas that create a unique place within Vancouver’s tourist destinations.

 

Principal, Brad McTavish and the Grout McTavish team worked with our Capilano partners and numerous structural and engineering specialists to transform a disused facility and transform it into the open airy and inviting pavilion it is today.
