Project Overview

Gone are the days of formulaic government offices, with uninspired gray surroundings for employees, and thank goodness for that!

Using an activity-based design methodology, the LWG design team developed four floors of light-filled space designed within the auspices of the Government of Canada Workplace Guidelines. Using affordable materials in innovative ways allowed us to deliver an economical space that is not short on design details.

Baltic birch plywood figures prominently throughout the space, along with key pops of colour. This space provides a menu of options to support the work that takes place throughout a typical day, including areas from heads-down tasks to spaces for active, boisterous collaboration.

A highlight of this project was the collaborative design approach with the client. What our team was able to achieve by working as a design team with SSC resulted in a very effective GC Workplace space uniquely suited to the users. – Rachel Burdick
