Robert H. Lee Alumni Centre, University of British Columbia

KPMB Architects as Architects

The new Alumni Centre was designed to reflect its distinct Pacific Northwest coast context and UBC's campus in particular. Local BC woods animate the interior and provide a material warmth in a grey climate. At grade it is porous and animated, featuring a café, fireplace lounge and library. The second floor celebration space for 300 can also be sub-divided to accommodate a multiplicity of uses. A large boardroom and ‘sky lounge’ on the third floor offer spectacular views of the campus. Designed to meet a tight budget, the project has been designed to achieve LEED Gold accreditation.
