Vancouver, Kelowna, Edmonton
Bryce Gauthier has been designing stores for MEC since 2006, starting with the company’s first LEED certified building. Since then he has led the landscape and site design for the design and construction of their Head Office, their flag ship Vancouver store as well as other retail stores across Western Canada.
The design gestures included sandblasted paving patters, the use of large locally quarried stone, custom designed bike racks and native planting endemic to the stores regional landscape ecology. These design gestures have became the guidelines on which all MEC stores were designed.
