We’re thrilled to offer a peek at Menno Hall’s newest 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.
Environmental stewardship was a core design driver through the design of the project. Green roofs, exposed cross-laminated-timber structure, and stormwater retention and management in an attractive subterranean “Grotto” give residents and visitors a visual, tactile and auditory connection to sustainable living. The journey to the Student Dining, Living and Lecture Hall via an overhead bridge allows views of the Grotto’s open-air courtyard.
