omb was commissioned by Simon Fraser University to introduce strategic upgrades to their Faculty of Education. The project includes re-imagining several of the major gathering and teaching spaces within the department. The project integrates a range of flexible state-of-the-art learning environments within their existing department. Our design approach focused on creating a more open and adaptable environment better suited to the ever-changing needs of faculty and students. Our work included significant improvements to the qualitative aspects of their space, including upgrades to finishes, lighting, IT systems, and improved mechanical services. One of the most critical challenges was respecting the architectural character of the robust 1970s building, while repurposing it in a manner appropriate to the 21st Century.
