This mixed-use building at the heart of the Thompson Rivers University campus creates a dynamic new centre for students and faculty. Design elements inspired by First Nations dwellings and crafts blend with sustainable features.
By maximizing sightlines through double storey volumes and extensive glazing, the building presents stunning views of the Thompson River Valley in central British Columbia and provides abundant natural light throughout.
The 77,000-square-foot facility includes a research library, a learning commons, classrooms and instructional labs, faculty offices, flexible meeting rooms, a gallery and café. These elements are unified by a sky lit central atrium featuring a biofilter ‘living wall’.
