Cambrian College Learning Commons

The design transforms a 20,000 sf disjointed 1970s library into a spatially dynamic, light-filled space where students can access both traditional library resources as well as the most advanced digital learning tools. The dramatic renovation of the existing facility provides significant improvement to its provision of library services and student learning, including additional enhanced study rooms, computer workstations, improved support services, state-of-the-art technology, and multiple upgraded meeting spaces. Key design strategies include a new palette of interior finishes and colours, and selective demolition to open previously closed-off views to a remarkable northern landscape.
