The Lum Sam building’s façade features both Italianate and Gothic influences derived from chinoiserie designs. Along the west side of the building is an alleyway that leads to two inner courtyards. There are two more narrow passages that form an internal passageway that goes through a small courtyard to link the private access from Pandora Avenue to Fisgard Street. It comprises nine residential units.
In 1901 Lee Chong and Lee Woy built the Lee Chong commercial and
residential building on the western end of Fisgard Street. To this day the exterior of the Lee Chong building remains in its original form, including wrought iron balconies off the second floor apartments which are accessed from segmental windows and doors and feature ornate stained glass windows and high ceilings. The Lee Chong building offers sixteen residential and three commercial units.
The Generations is a 48 unit three and five storey rental residential building.
The challenge was to fit this project into a predominantly one and two storey scale community and gain neighborhood support.
The five storey element was placed beside a large shopping center and the three storey portion makes a transition to the street. The shape of the building and the detail around the windows and decks add interest and break down the scale of the large building.
This 20,000 sq. ft. three storey building was built on an empty site alongside the Island Highway for Dr. King and King Lasik. The modern building uses a mix of cedar siding and aluminum storefront glazing.
Visible on four streets, this building had to deal with the site grades and four visible sides. The roof line is playful and reflects the image of eyebrows – the sunshade reflects the image of eyelashes for the Lasik Eye Care Facility.

The development of Eagle Creek Village was a ten-year exercise of working at a high level of involvement with the municipality to develop a long-term plan that accommodated the immense influx of density.
Proposed and delivered was a balanced neighbourhood village that combines retail, office, commercial and residential uses with
beneficial employment, recreational and transportation adjacencies that align with the intent of the Official Community Plan.
The combination of office, retail and residential was essential for both tenant success, and the success of the centre. The resulting
development is a walkable attraction in the community which services and draws visitors into the town of View Royal.
