St. Ambrose Catholic School +
CLIENT: Toronto Catholic District School Board
This 410 pupil place school located on a small urban site (2.95 acres) places a high priority on the relationship between the building, the street and neighbouring properties, with the creation of a series of defined exterior spaces for play, landscape and for community gathering. The limited acreage required a creative approach to land use where the hard surface playground also serves as a bus drop-off/pick-up area before and after school. Landscaped areas were developed to allow for multiple forms of active and passive play.
