PROJECT UPDATE: Menno Hall Exterior Renders

Menno Hall is a mixed-use gateway development within the University Endowment Lands (UEL), adjacent to the University of British Columbia Vancouver campus. This project weaves sustainability into the physical and social space of the building by carefully addressing solar orientation, urban context and the unique co-existence of rental housing, student housing and academic/institutional mixed-use.

“Responding to the Neighbourhood”
The location of this development at a key urban intersection grants opportunity for the design to utilize the street-level energy generated by the movement of pedestrian traffic. The public realm flows directly underneath the housing in an outdoor weather-protected pedestrian quadrangle, integrating the building with the surrounding site.
