Concordia University's "Laboratories H10 Gina-Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science" project transformed the 10th floor of the Henry F. Hall Building into new teaching spaces. These encompass Aerospace and Chemical & Materials Engineering (CME) labs, Maker Spaces, a Living Lab for real-time building study, and student research areas.
The Henry F. Hall Building, a key structure at Concordia's Sir-George-Williams campus, was reimagined in collaboration with the university, the users, the engineers and consultants. Guided by modernist principles, the design maintains the building's iconic style. Central corridors host public functions, emphasis was placed on the Living Lab and Maker Spaces for student engagement and visibility.
Noise-sensitive areas like Maker Space and Aérospace were thoughtfully placed away from classrooms, featuring acoustic elements to reduce sound. Collaboration is encouraged through spatial arrangements, and universal accessibility guides the design of workspaces and facilities. Flexibility is integrated with plug-and-play services supporting research equipment and reconfigurable furniture. The resulting environment fosters interaction and the flow of natural light, promising a dynamic hub for learning and innovation.
