Hapa Collaborative worked with Dennis Boyle and Three Dimensional Services Inc. to create a wayfinding and placemaking experience based on a system of Portals and Banners for Whistler Village. The system design utilizes materials, form, colour, imagery, and word marks to visually communicate ‘what Whistler is about’ while introducing ten new neighbourhood names within the Village.

The proposed ‘kit of parts’ approach includes large and small Portals at key Village entry points, as well as banners for lightpoles in the Village. Together, these components create a consistent graphic language to enhance connectivity, sense of place, and overall experience within the Whistler Village.
