Clayton Community Centre
This visionary building is on track to be the first community centre to achieve Passive House certification in North America. It will also be Canada's largest Passive House facility to date.
Clayton Community Centre in Surrey is a community hub integrating arts and cultural programming, a library, recreation facilities, and outdoor spaces all in one location. A revolutionary leaf-like heavy timber structure, pinwheel units create a two-way wood structure spanning the larger spaces throughout the building. With the interlocking members, a tree canopy was created to envelop all spaces of the building together, gaining structural strength from all the members being interconnected.
