Putting the focus on students with a contemporary new center for learning

When Conestoga College needed space for its growing School of Health and Life Sciences, the new building had to bring collaborative and practical hands-on learning to a new level.

We designed a three storey addition to Doon Campus’ F Wing for students in nursing programs and future paramedics, homecare workers, security specialists, biotechnology technicians and skilled workers.

A double height student lounge features wood finishes, tipped translucent skylights and bold expanses of vivid pink on the mezzanine level walls. At the rear of the lounge, students gain practical experience in a mock hospital ward. The design supports new approaches to learning through digital media and immersive technology, bringing learning to life.

The contemporary, student-focused building has become the preferred front door of the campus for a whole cross section of the Conestoga College community. Students have moved from a situation where the various components were scattered across the campus with no sense of community, to a modern, interdisciplinary facility that enables them to maximize interprofessional learning opportunities.
