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.
