At one of the largest federal office buildings in Canada, Two Row Architect is part of the team that is modernizing the Public Works and Procurement’s workplace and reconnecting the organization to its surroundings in meaningful ways.
The existing, historic brutalist “megastructure” will be respected, while significant improvements in envelope performance, accessibility and integration with the street will be made. Connection to existing green space will be a focus, and both energy and ventilation systems as well as office spaces will be completely modernized.
Together with Perkins & Will, Two Row Architect is working on the Place du Portage III project to ensure that Indigenous design is integrated into the project. The team seeks to celebrate the long history of the site and add to the building’s experience for all users by engaging with Indigenous stakeholders and community members.
