University Fieldhouse

University Fieldhouse is a sports building in British Columbia, designed as an abstracted interpretation the traditional agricultural barns of BC.

Copper toned façades and a copper toned roof align with the red brick and ochre tones of the surrounding buildings on campus, while the repetition of structural ribs brings spatial interest to the inside and character to the outside of the fieldhouse.

Internally, the gymnasium plays with symmetry and contrast by positioning a long, high window to the north to capture natural light and frame views of the campus, while a long, low window facing south connects with a soccer field alongside.

The fieldhouse uses structural timber to bring a richness to the interiors, while complimenting the natural surroundings.
