Burlington Art Centre Renovation and Addition

The seventh largest art centre in Ontario, the Burlington Art Centre was built in 1970 to become a facility where seven resident guilds could work, teach and exhibit their work together. The guilds include: photography, hand-weaving and spinning, sculpture and woodcarving, pottery, fine arts, hooking craft, and quilting. The facility is home to the largest collection of Contemporary Canadian Ceramics in Canada.
In 2000, the existing facility (36,000 sq. ft.) underwent a strategic 8000 sq. ft. expansion, with 15000 sq. ft. of renovation in order to accommodate the changing needs of guild studio space, exhibit, meeting and retail space.The design intent of the client was to respect the existing architectural geometry, while raising the physical profile of the facility as a progressive centre for the celebration and education of art within the community.
