About This Project

Argyll House

Argyll East and West are located at the core of the Theological Neighbourhood on the UBC campus. The building's form and massing is designed to provide a composed, but strong front facing the historic Iona Building. The entries and forecourts reinforce and provide a strong connection to the street and urban open space fronting Iona Commons. Cut granite was used on the facades fronting the Iona, while the remaining facades were composed of concrete and glass to take advantage of the panoramic views of Burrard Inlet and Vancouver Island beyond.
