The project entails two separate high schools, a 500-seat community theatre, a 1,000-seat food court, libraries, a community police centre, and a college branch office on an eight hectare site.

The challenge of the project focused on providing flexible yet unique spaces that could be easily personalized within this large complex. The design relied on view corridors, clarity of building elements, identification of realm and provision of daylight.

The facility was a pioneer in sustainable buildings, showcasing advanced building envelope technology, atrium passive gains and daylight, sun shading and lightshelves, as well as energy reclamation.
