Churchill Meadows Community Centre

2019/06/20

The City of Mississauga is providing a new park and community centre as part of the overall Ninth Line Lands development between Highway 403 and 401. The project will serve this urban densification along the City’s western boundary, along a tributary of 16-mile creek, with a recreation centre and a 50-acre park. A fitness trail system around the park will connect with a series of new and existing pedestrian trails extending into the city fabric. The site will be a destination point in this system.expanded metal mesh

The building appears as a simple form within the landscape, but reveals a heavy timber structure beneath its expanded metal mesh envelope and a complex internal ceiling of forms used to control light and sound.


A series of activities have been grouped together under an undulating ceiling. The gym, lobby and pool have been covered by a stretched membrane assembly shaped to reflect and absorb both sound and natural light. These inverted peaks form continuous loops over each pool, the lobby and the gym courts. They are lined with LED light fixtures highlighting the spaces within the space. Micro perforations in the membrane ceiling let sound pass through to acoustic insulation. Natural light drops into the space from a series of skylights above, reflecting off the membrane ceiling. The aim, beyond the practical function of eliminating glare and excess heat gain, is to provide more enigmatic space with this slightly subtle source of light, like a lit cavern of some sort.

Expanded Aluminum MeshThe gym, lobby and pool are wrapped with glulam framing, which extends outwards to form a deep overhang and is clad in expanded aluminum mesh which permits filtered light through to the building. Glazing units connect directly to the glulam columns by means of a toggle system set between the light and directly fastened to the glulam columns. The result is a robust wood structure clad in a very simple glazed curtain panel.
