How to transform a 1950s bank building into an eye catching and dynamic health services clinic was the design and build challenge for this project. Located at the intersection of Cook and Cloverdale, the site is a highly visible location.
The building was designed with stepped roof heights to denote the different functions of the interior space. Varied exterior shading treatments (corten steel and perforated corrugated metal screening) were used to generate an intimate interior space given the highly glazed façade. A curved brick façade and landscaping soften the project’s relationship with the street corner.
Additional features include curved perimeter walls, a round skylight well and continuous curtain wall transoms around the west addition.
Some salvaged Bank of Montreal structure (floors structural supports, T&G ceiling) was incorporated.
