University of Waterloo Student Life CentreClient : University of Waterloo

The design inventively links the existing Student Life Centre (designed by CS&P), which contains food services, retail, and multi-purpose rooms and study areas, with the existing Physical Activities Complex (PAC) to create a single integrated Student Life Centre. The program includes an expanded dining area and servery, lounge spaces, event space, improved multi-purpose rooms, grad lounges and grad offices, and administrative and club space. The PAC design work includes targeted renovation and retrofit, a new control and entry, change rooms, a fitness facility, and administrative offices. The design strategy reinforces an important sequence of green spaces on campus while creating a compelling transparent face to student life activities.
