About This Project

UBC Theological Neighbourhood

The University of British Columbia’s Theological Neighbourhood was developed in 1927 with the granite clad Iona Building and Commons at its core. Ramsay Worden Architects amended the original plan to include a collection of mid-rise residences and duplexes: Chancellor House, Chancellor Hall, Argyll House East, Argyll House West and Folio. These new residences were integrated into the traditional language of the neighbourhood: granite facades, forecourts and entrances combine with sustainable landscape design and contemporary concrete and glass stepped building forms providing panorama views of the Burrard Inlet and distant Vancouver Island.
