On this project Maples Reinders was tasked with the conversion of former office administration areas into a world class teaching environment with focused study areas and dedicated learning spaces. This project had several unique elements incorporated into it.
Student Support and Instructor Prep Area: A casual space for touch down work or studying incorporating a feature green wall to improve indoor air quality and livens the space for a healthier learning environment.
Indigenous Smudging Room: With a special HVAC system to disperse any smoke or scents burned in the room.
Moveable and Writable Partitions: between two studios allow students to use the walls as a canvas for drawing or writing and expand the space for their creative endeavours.
Existing Heritage Elements: including glazing and concrete forms were left in place in corridors and balanced with thoughtful acoustic baffles.
