WHISTLER TOWN PLAZA

Village Stroll & Town Plaza, Whistler, BC

PWL Partnership Landscape Architects Inc. - 1995

This public plaza creates a distinctive setting for three hotels and commercial retail space as well as pedestrians walking past on the Village Stroll just west of the Municipal Hall. In addition to the prominent bandstand, the space features unique heat traced S-shapes in the stone paving which melt the snow in the winter to reveal the ‘first tracks’ - an abstract representation of the skiers’ first run through fresh snow. Throughout the plaza, local basalt and granite boulders serve as objects for casual seating, gathering and play. The design also includes water features, streetscape, outdoor gardens and courtyards.
