The City of Toronto and Toronto Public Library selected our team to provide an addition to the existing Community Centre and to expand the existing Library. We developed a strategy that rationalizes the two disparate programs and allows each to have their own distinct floor area and identity. In addition, this solution offers a significant capital and operational savings for the client. During the inital design phase, the client added to the project by requesting that we renovate and add a new wing to the Childcare program. Working with the three clients (Parks and Rec, Childcare and TPL), the local councillor and the community advisory board, we successfully guided a dynamic design process. The final design includes phasing of construction to accommodate the group’s operational schedules and represents a solution that balances concerns such as preservation of parkland, sustainability and budget.
