The new Lannon Hall Elementary School provides an inspiring 21st century learning and teaching environment behind its historic 1924 facade, an iconic connection to Vancouver College’s past that was retained and restored during construction. Combined with the existing senior school and Manrell Hall Middle School, which we completed in 2018, this project creates a sense of place for the only all-boys independent Catholic school in British Columbia.
Located in the False Creek Flats area of Vancouver, Industrial Long Wood is an exposed mass timber building that measures 27 by 21 metres wide and 162 metres long, equivalent to a 54-storey tower laid on its side. The proposed building supports a City of Vancouver planning vision for a newly established light industrial and digital tech office area located close to downtown and the Port of Vancouver.
Brock Commons Tallwood House has been featured in a case study in Tomorrow’s Timber.

Following our completion of York House Senior School in 2013, we recently delivered a new addition that filled in a covered area near the main entrance to the school. The new STEAM Lab provides flexible learning space for science, technology, engineering, arts, and math including an open workshop, an adaptable equipment room, and abundant space for storage and display. The inviting, glass-enclosed lab allows views of the student activity within and showcases the cross-disciplinary exploration and experiential learning that are hallmarks of a 21st century education.
