Regis College, University of Toronto

Prominently located at the corner of Queen’s Park Crescent and Wellesley Street, The Regis College project includes the careful restoration and renovation of the heritage-designated Christie House Mansion, renovations to the lower and ground floors of Fontbonne Hall, and the addition of a 9 metre high glass and zinc-clad atrium linking the two buildings together which provides a spectacular new identity for the college on the University of Toronto campus. The project program includes teaching spaces, faculty offices, and student amenities such as the 98,000 volume Regis College Library.

The atrium addition plays an important role as an informal meeting place, while also providing a generous reception area for larger gatherings during the College’s numerous special events.
