Alberni District Secondary School
Port Alberni BC
This new secondary school was sited and designed as an integral part of its neighbouring buildings and landscapes. The design complements the community, with functional spaces that can be used by students as well as the general public. First Nations culture is incorporated into the building to celebrate First Nations values and traditions.
Sustainable design strategies are an integral part of the character of the facility, and innovative approaches to rain water retention, natural daylight, and renewable materials double as learning tools for students. The building is designed to LEED Gold standards.
The architectural design team was a joint venture between Atelier Pacific Architecture and Meiklejohn Architects of Kelowna BC.
