The Hazel McCallion Campus Phase 2A (HMC2A) is an integral addition to the campus expansion project with a range of amenity space and athletics facilities designed to give diversity and depth to the student experience.
The 70,000 ft2 HMC2A connects directly with HMC2 and can be accessed from a shared portico at grade and across two upper levels. A series of lounge and study spaces, club rooms, food outlets, games areas feed into and off of a generous, highly transparent double-height atrium. This administrative suites, fitness studios, gymnasium and feature running track located on the third and forth floors benefit from a more modest fenestration to prevent solar glare, provide for more diffuse natural light and offer engaging views out to the campus and city core. With strong connections between the different program spaces, the building an accessible, animate space that inspires a rich sense of community and collegiality.
Like the Phase 2 facility, HMC2A responds to the needs and goals of the larger campus and Civic Centre by animating the public realm with quality outdoor spaces for resting, gathering and playing. Open and covered walkways, a patio and outdoor turf field complement the graphic, angular design of the quad and offer occasion for social activities inside the building to spill out into the campus.
