Mac’s Convenience, London, Ontario
Good urban design can make a contribution to the urban landscape. Weston Consulting urban design team’s proposal for a gas bar with convenience store and car wash facility at Fanshawe Park Road East and Highbury Avenue North in London, Ontario illustrates this truth.
Working with existing site features and surroundings, the team has created a design proposal which significantly enhances the intersection. The plan provides identity, defines street edges and includes naturalized and landscaped areas which create smooth transitions to neighbouring land uses. Contemporary architectural features, colours and materials combine to give the gas bar, store and car wash strong visual interest.
