With the successful establishment of an excellent working relationship on the renovation of their existing facility, YMCA Sarnia chose jp thomson architects directly to design and document their new Association Offices space.
Located in an existing lease space within walking distance of the exisitng YMCA, this space provides offices, conference space and amenities for the 20 staff and daily visitors.
As a complete gut and renovation project, the design utilizes similar materials (wood, Eco-Resin, Quartzstone) as the renovation to their fitness facility to provide continuity between the two. The open office work area is situated near the front glazing wall to take advantage of natural light while the private offices have large expanses of glazing to ‘borrow’ light and space from the open-plan design. The addition of sky-lighting deeper in the floor-plate brings natural light further into the public and private areas of the space.
