This building was commissioned as the indoor pool for the Ontario Winter Games.

The overall complex contains a competition pool, children’s pool and recreation area, a new ice arena, restaurant, field house, meeting rooms, several concessions, classrooms, etc. The building shares many common architectural and material features with the other buildings on the site to reinforce the wholeness of the recreational complex.

Each building possesses a glazed two storey entrance and rectangular sports floor or activity area, all of differing scales and materials. As this is a public facility in a highly corrosive atmosphere, we incorporated very robust materials and systems to withstand abuse and environmental concerns. Mr. Ellis’s interiors won a national design award for the building and its materials.
