Designing a symbol and heart of the South Pointe community
We set out to help design a school that would become a symbol and heart of the South Pointe community. How? By engaging with staff, students, and all other stakeholders to create a welcoming, interconnected, and progressive design—a school complex with character.
Targeting LEED-Gold certification, the new K-8 dual-track École South Pointe School is a two-story facility serving the growing population of South Pointe. It also represents the first of many schools that will serve the expanding Waverley West neighborhoods in South-West Winnipeg.
At 87,000 square feet, a central lobby connects all traffic circulation and it’s envisioned to become the ‘community heart’ of the school. The building also incorporates a 74 space community daycare, complete with flex-rooms that can be used before, during, and after school.
Our team led a vigorous integrated design process that included workshops with the PSFB, division administration, and school staff. Moreover, a dedicated session with future South Pointe students helped us to understand their expectations. And as a result of our collaborative design process and initiative, the school’s new design reflects the values of Community, Environmental Stewardship, Connectedness and Discovery.
On opening day, École South Pointe would accommodate approximately 600 students. But our design allows for a capacity of up to 800.
