Project Description

FROM THE AIBC:

The office of mcfarlane biggar architects + designers' Bookstore renovation and expansion at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver BC both redefines the university bookstore while simultaneously animating and bringing vitality to the campus heart. Situated in a prominent location at the Campus center, the original building suffered from lack of a clear and visible entry. The addition provides a lighter, brighter, more welcoming presence that both respects and contrasts the tough solidity of the existing building and transforms the Bookstore into a vibrant social space.
