Lethbridge, Alberta

The Rebound Health Centre at the University of Lethbridge is a private orthopedic medicine, sports medicine, and physical therapy clinic, developed at the University’s 1st Choice Credit Union Health and Wellness Centre as a lease space for a local medical practice. The centre supplements and enhances the programming and services available for the University’s Health and Wellness faculty, and provides an opportunity for members of the community to engage in services through the University. The design was challenging as the centre was constructed in an existing undeveloped space on the lower level of the Health and Wellness Centre, with no access to natural light or views. Through the use of vibrant colours, light warm wood tones, and bright open ceilings, the sense of space was significantly enhanced and a cohesive attractive clinic was carved out of a remnant subterranean space.
