Seneca College Student Residence and Conference Centre

Housing & Conference Space for over 1,100 Students

Constructed in two distinct phases, the Seneca College Residence is a very large building with 1,100 beds in over 400,000 sq.ft. There were no planning preconceptions; our design team was responsible for the entire siting/master planning exercise involving a full examination of the College’s plans for expansion to ensure that this unique component would form a logical part of the future campus.
To reduce the visual mass of the building, the structure contains three faceted, distinct ‘wings’ that symmetrically taper upwards from ten to thirteen floors, to a fifteen storey high central wing that steps up to distinctive, pitched roof, penthouse structures.
