Hugh Cochlin Architect AIBC AAA MRAIC LEED AP Principal

At WDGC/Architectura, two of the current Proscenium principals, Kori Chan and Hugh Cochlin, were project architects on the Vancouver Airport.

In 1997, Hugh Cochlin joined Proscenium to take on the role of Project Architect for the Stanley Theatre. He became an associate in 1999 and a partner and in 2005. Hugh has remained extremely involved in the firm's arts and culture projects and has also led the diversification of the firm's project base with his many commercial and residential clients.

"It's been a success in that everybody is talking about it and looking at what they glean from it and take to other projects," said Hugh Cochlin a principal with Proscenium Architecture and Interiors, the firm that designed the building.

About 300 staff work in the four-storey, 112,000-square-foot glass, wood and steel building. It features natural lighting, geothermal heat, on-site water management and sensors that control window blinds and lighting.
Cochlin said a passive ventilation system acts as the "lungs of the building", pulling in fresh air through three wind towers on the roof and exhausting used air out the same way. He said a blue roof captures rainwater and transfers it to an underground cistern for non-potable water.
Rain gardens and plants outside of the office filter water and run-off before it goes into the drain system.
Cochlin said the mechanical system is an important part of the building. "The [tenants] are not talking about the mechanical system and what that actually means is it's working properly," he said. "When you hear about people talking about how happy they are at work, that's when you know you've had a success."
While the MEC office was a new build, Cochlin agrees that renovating existing structures is often the first step in the greening of a city. "I have always believed that taking buildings and repurposing them is the way to go, not just tearing them down," he said.
