Institutional Design

Campbell River City Hall

In phases, the City of Campbell River is updating the City Hall grounds:

  • to improve pedestrian access
  • to honour its twin-city relationship with Ishikari, Japan
  • to provide improved parking and circulation and
  • to enhance aesthetics for visitors and staff alike.

JPH has provided comprehensive design services along the way.

In the first phase, pedestrian access and the planting of cherries, honouring Ishikari, was implemented. All design by JPH including: contemporary signage, pedestrian lighting and walkway alignment.

Future improvements include an updating of the Enterprise Centre courtyard, to include: a garden shelter, new pavings, better lighting and new plantings. Elements in the design symbolize the culture link with Ishikari – the shoji lighting of the shelter, the raked sand pattern in the pavement.


Government House Rose Garden

Early in his career (1990), working with Brenda Grice (then, principal at Lanarc Consultants), Pat undertook all design responsibilities for the architectural elements Government House Rose Garden – from conception through to hand-drafted ink-on-vellum Tender drawings.  On the strength of that project, the Right Honourable Lieutenant Governor, David Lam, subsequently requested the design of the Teahouse. Again, Pat was tasked with complete design responsibility for the metal and glass structure, opened by HRM Queen Elizabeth in 1994.
