Summarized Per Project Brief in Health Design Study
This fast-growing Toronto suburb needed a better integrated health and wellness centre; it was important to the design to create clear wayfinding and an obvious entrance.
Mission achieved with the massive stand-alone glass entrance canopy. The Stella Spider supported glass roof provides a clear entry point as well as shelter from the elements.
