BC Alpine!!


BC Alpine Scene Conceptual Design, Di 2016

I drafted two concept designs: the first a 360 degree view of southern BC shoreline with inter-tidal zone, the Straight of Georgia and Howe Sound islands, coastal arbutus and fern forest. The second is a BC Alpine mountain scene with glacial lake, wildflower meadows and old growth pine forest. Both designs are loaded with native wildlife; everything from tiny birds and rodents to large bears and orcas. Floor 7 (Medical/Surgical Inpatient) is following a forest Wayfinding theme therefore for both designs I brought in ample forest life, and because water is a calming element I wanted to include the rippling ocean and lake.

After meetings with BC Children’s Hospital patients and siblings the BC Alpine concept was selected. I absolutely love both concepts! I am very happy with the choice and extremely excited to begin work on this project. Some wildlife I will be including are grizzly bear mother and cubs, mountain goats, a family of grey wolves, bighorn sheep, a family of Pika, Canadian moose, bald eagles, grey jays and more!

But coastal concept fans stay tuned…. there might be a surprise in store for the BC shoreline scene! 😉
