Humber College Students’ Federation Offices
The student federation offices are separated from the student centre by a two-storey curtain wall of translucent and red-hued glass overlaid with a pattern of frosted circles providing privacy to the offices beyond. From a distance, the composition of circles creates a pixelated image of a forest from the adjacent Humber Valley – bringing an awareness of the surrounding nature to a space that lacks any views of the outdoors. Prior to the renovation, the atrium lacked a clear focal point. The curtain wall now creates a coherent and visually stimulating backdrop for major events such as convocation and award ceremonies, and serves as a beacon for the student services within.
