SHAPE Architecture has been working with the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton club since 2018 to plan future expansion to the existing club complex built in 1928. This project to replace the existing badminton hall with a new state-of-the-art facility includes national level badminton courts, spectator areas and extensive fitness spaces on the top floor including weight rooms and fitness studios. As part of the club’s long term decarbonization plan, the project includes a Building Integrated Photo-Voltaic (BIPV) roof that generates all the electricity required to operate the building systems. As the first net zero athletics facility in BC, the projects includes extensive passive design strategies, super efficient building systems and a high efficiency building envelope. The expansion project is carefully integrated with the existing complex of buildings, complimenting and modernizing the building’s expression in a high visibility location at the corner of Fir Street and 16th Avenue in Vancouver.
