Renderings released for TMU’s planned glass-and-timber wellness facility


BlogTO and Storeys report that the design for a new facility planned for Toronto Metropolitan University’s campus could “up the institution’s aesthetic ante.” The renderings of the eight-storey Student Wellbeing Centre depict a building comprised of mass timber, glass, and green roofs. BlogTO notes that the design includes “projecting glass boxes” on the fifth, sixth, and seventh floors that will function as meeting rooms. The facility will be built into the historic O’Keefe House, a former student residence and reportedly one of the oldest buildings on campus, and will consolidate all health services offered across TMU’s campus.
