Project Overview

We design a lot of office spaces. Sometimes they come with unique non-office areas. The important work done by the Patented Medicine Prices Review Board (PMPRB) requires a Hearing Room and all the necessary supporting spaces that go with it.

Judicial spaces, such as Court Rooms and Hearing Rooms, are steeped in history and decorum. To tie this space to the past, and at the same time, bring it into the present, LWG developed a modern colour palette and architectural vocabulary that includes linear wood elements. These elements also carry over into the connected office space.

Clean lines, bright, open spaces and refreshing colours are what we see, but behind these beautiful spaces is an acoustically engineered facility. The nature of the work done in this facility demanded a high level of sound proofing to ensure the confidentiality of all parties would be assured.

An exciting design challenge as it’s not your typical office space. Bringing judicial spaces and
hearing rooms into the modern era. Working with natural wood for a sophisticated end-result.  –
