This project consisted of an approx. 11,000 sq. ft. 2-storey renovation of an existing salon + spa for the Humber Art Academy.
Humber Art Commons is a live lab that provides students with a creative space to explore and discover new techniques. Located at Lakeshore Campus, this building acts as a hub for art students to learn in as well as providing gallery space to showcase work.
The open concept allows for a modern studio space flooded by natural light. The space has been modelled on the general concept of transformability. Four individual spaces can be turned into any kind of collaborative space depending on need.
This project included complete interior demolition, new Mechanical systems, new Electrical systems incl. A/V, Communications & Security, a new elevator founded on micropiles, structural reinforcement, new acoustic panels, and high end floor + wall finishes to compliment studio, laboratory and classroom space.
Work was substantially complete within 4 months with a very aggressive construction schedule.
