A Tapestry of Truth
Though part of a complex with a pre-existing wing built a few years ago, this expansion shall have an identity of its’ own. Its identity shall be related to its predecessor yet shall be distinctly differentiated in terms of character, branding, and even target customers. The design was thus hinged on the idea of understanding the real meaning of place, past, and future. It attempts to extract the micro-culture and the sense of place of the province and specific site, the architectural language of what came before us, and the essence of what it means to merge all of this into a structure that will remain relevant for decades to come.
