Project Status: In progress
Location: Fernie, BC
Studio 9 is partnering with Urban Systems to develop a new water treatment facility for the town of Fernie. The pump house designed by Studio 9 is intended to be the feature building of the James White Well Project which will bring clean drinking water to the residents of Fernie. Located in James White Park on a conspicuous site, the City of Fernie wanted a building that would blend into its surroundings and become part of the park landscape. The simple structure of prefabricated concrete panels is covered by a peeled away strip of ground serving as a coat of camouflage.
