Ekistics was hired to master plan an ocean-front property that has been in the MacLeod family for decades. It was critical to design units that capitalized on ocean views and created a variety of unit types that appealed to giving them access and lead people from all walks of life to this beautiful part of our province.

Our primary goal was to achieve the desired development density while maintaining the natural character of the site. We approached the challenge by looking for a simple solution that would maximize the ocean and golf course views while maintaining the privacy  of the individual units. Our master plan was developed simultaneously with unit types to ensure that the design worked  at all scales, and maintained our core principle of respecting the property.

Having planning, architecture, landscape architecture, and civil engineering all working together with the client allowed us to create an effective master plan that addressed all of the design constraints and opportunities the site presented.
