Waterfront Place is located near the heart of Dundarave Village. Originally the site of a dental clinic, the new building emulates the early West Coast modern building with its sweeping roof and bold massing. The site is defined by a body of water which transforms into a waterfall as it gently flows down the site toward the beach.
The interior of the building is defined by a curving stairway which connects the commercial office space to the foyer. The building has been recognized by the municipality of West Vancouver for its superb siting and construction.
Karl's portfolio of projects includes work in multiple residential, commercial, custom residential and resort developments. Mr. Gustavson has traveled extensively throughout the world bringing to his projects a depth of experience that continues to add to the success of his designs.
The firm's principal, Karl W. Gustavson, established his own firm in 1985 to focus his experience on projects that required a sensitive approach to design while recognizing the realities of the site, localized community context and budgets.
