Pickering College is a rapidly growing independent school in Newmarket, Ontario. With strong roots to Quaker values and principles, the school required a comprehensive facility map for a
long-term growth strategy that incorporates the reuse of existing heritage buildings, new structures and future site uses.
Our design considers programming and development options for a new purpose-built Arts Centre and Auditorium, a new stand-alone Junior School, a new student and staff Residence and an addition to the existing athletics facilities.
The result is a design that builds on the core Quaker values of simplicity while expressing the College’s meaningful heritage and high aspirations to advance Pickering College as a “campus of influence”. The design sets a new standard for enabling individuals to thrive and engages students, parents, staff and alumni in a lifetime relationship with the school, while creating an outstanding place for healthy learning, working and building a strong a sense of community.
