Bradford, Ontario

The new Bradford Leisure Centre will be one of the largest multi-use recreation facilities in the Province of Ontario when it opens in 2011. The approach of the design is simple with a central circulation spine off of which one finds the rinks, gymnasium, natatorium and fitness club. The intent was to create a facility where one could see all of the major spaces from within the space thereby making the wayfinding through the building easy and straightforward. A formal and authoritative building structure helps to establish the building as part of a larger municipal campus with a sense of scale being achieved through pedestrian arcades that link various components of the campus and sun-shades that provide texture and warmth. This 158,000 sq. ft., $45 million facility is scheduled to open in the fall of 2011.
