Crowsnest Consolidated High School Modernization


Crowsnest Pass, Alberta

Located in Alberta’s dramatic Crowsnest Pass, the consolidated highschool serves the diverse and dispersed community. The project involved emptying of the school to allow for a major modernization, completely transforming both the interior and exterior. Existing window-less classrooms were generously provided with natural light. The library is the central focus with windows looking into the central Gathering Area and to the mountain views beyond. Openness, access to natural light, and creating a sense of community drove the design process.
