Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School is a private school accommodating Grades K through 12. A 65,000 ft² expansion was added on the school’s 220-acre campus in order to meet the school’s learning and teaching needs.

The new addition was designed to embrace the surrounding mountain vista and reflect the local environment. The expansion included a two-storey elementary wing constructed adjacent to the existing auditorium space. The wing is structurally independent from the existing building and tie-in to the central core of the school.

Flexible spaces were created to enable teachers to incorporate a wider variety of activities and better align instruction with learning styles. As well, the main entry to the school, located south of the auditorium, was reconfigured into a new gathering and welcoming space.
