The Centre’s architectural inspiration was derived from local and historic design references. Careful consideration was put into honoring the site’s industrial past and prominent waterside location.

The building’s bold form - an impressive 35’-tall, 60’ x 30’ gable-ended space clad in dark metal panels, integrated with a smaller, more intimate, cedar-clad ‘box’ providing entry, pays homage to marine warehouses and industrial waterfront precedents.

In terms of architectural character, the building’s form is intended to be clear, minimal, and elegant from a distance, yet encompass an array of rich materials and intricate detailing up close.
