From the Architect. On a tight budget and schedule, we sought to bring out the best in the 1940’s Pipefitter’s Building by using white paint to focus attention on the heavy timber structure and pair well with wedding dresses!

Locating a small addition of washrooms, a servery, and a projector surface to the far end of the building, we left the remainder of the space flexible for a wide variety of community events.

Space for a future upper floor and additional programming has been provided behind the projector surface. A red corridor has been carved out of our addition to direct the public to the washrooms and energize the atmosphere in the venue.

Three shades of white and two shades of red paint were used to further accent the geometry within the venue. Paint colours were selected to perfectly match available shades of Johnsonite Resilient Rubber Wall Base. We have been thrilled to watch the community enjoy the facility as much as we enjoyed working on it!
