The proposed design is for a Chatham Education Centre. It consists of three irregularly shaped, stacked units, with the second block facing the river views. The mass timber structure seeks to produce a sustainable, low-carbon building and enables the building to contribute to the circular economy. The exposed lattice CLT beam and columns support the cantilevered structure of the building while also contributing to the interior aesthetic. The building’s layout is founded on the need to educate the community while fostering interaction between users of all ages and backgrounds.
