Wikwemikong School Addition

Wikwemikong, Ontario
Construction - Fall 2000
Area - 17 820sq. ft.

Phase II of the Wikwemikong Learning & Resource Center is a two storey expansion designed to address the new needs of the Wasse Abin High School. Included in the program are Science and Computer laboratories, internet ready classrooms, a commercial kitchen and adjoining multipurpose room for lunches and community events

The design palette of the original school was utilized to produce a harmonious addition. Site constraints and a desire to minimize excavation, led to an addition that was angled off of the planning axis of the original school. Flexibility and after hour usage were important design criteria, as this was to be a community facility, and an adult learning centre.
