Completed in 2017, the 8,000 square metre Aquatic Centre is located at the University of British Columbia’s, Point Grey Campus. The new facility accommodates high performance training, community aquatics and student campus life. Angular massing, a soaring roof canopy and extensive glazing merge to create a dynamic form that dramatically reveals activities taking place within.
A central skylight spine brings natural light into the center of the space while our ES SERIES motorized shades control the light coming through the south facing glazing.
Installation was a challenge with the deep pocket detail and working to accommodate the sloped roofline. Each shade had to be hung stepped up or down from the next to compliment the angles of the structure.
