To help revitalize activity in Cambie Village, the City of Vancouver held a series of public open houses, giving the community an opportunity to play a role in creating a new streetscape unique to their neighbourhood.

During the construction of the Canada Line rapid transit tunnel through Vanouver, much of the Cambie Street public realm was disturbed by cut and cover construction. The City of Vancouver hired DK to seize this as an opportunity to explore possibilities of how the Cambie Corridor might be restored to a better condition than it was before construction. The segment of Cambie Street between 16th and King Edward Avenues, referred to as Cambie Village, was chosen by the City as one of the key nodes they wanted to focus their attention. DK worked closely with the City of Vancouver and the local business association to prioritize upgrades to the public realm. DK produced material for a series of public open houses to develop an aesthetic and character for Cambie Village. The resulting street design incorporated Art Deco elements into the design that relate to the contextual significance of Vancouver City Hall, while the public art centred around the themes of food and film.
