Okanagan College Centre for Learning

The Centre for Learning houses the library and information services, study rooms, and learning technology stations. The facility is attuned to the growing need for high-tech learning, and addresses the cultural and community needs, thus providing a welcoming, functional, and dynamic place for learning, gathering, and socializing.

The project is designed to achieve LEED® Gold Certification through the use of grey water for irrigation, natural lighting to interior spaces, bio-swales for stormwater management, and Pine Beetle wood was featured as a certified wood material within the building.

Steel and glass create a modern facade, contrasted by the curves of Centre for Dialog, a pod-like structure made from indigenous fir. An atrium connects the addition to the library, providing additional study space.

Though slated to achieve LEED® Gold Certification, the project may be eligible for LEED® Platinum Certification.
