2014 - FVREB Award of Excellence - Best Community Recreation Project

An extensive community consultation and integrated design approach led the design process for the Arts and Fitness Expansion to the South Surrey Recreation Centre. A new entrance and lobby provides a welcomed social gathering space and the connection between the existing facility and the expansion. A north-south circulation axis leads to a new arts plaza at the north end of the expansion, and lends porosity between the fitness and arts components.

The expansion includes a 9,000 sf weight room, multi-purpose studios for arts and fitness, child minding facilities, and administration offices, to supplement the existing gymnasiums, classrooms, and youth lounge at the centre.
