In collaboration with Moriyama & Teshima Architects, we brought to life the largest community museum in Ontario. A feature gallery showcases local and travelling exhibits from around the world, and the permanent gallery tells the story of Waterloo Region.
Setting the stage for exploration, the Waterloo Region Museum is purposefully located at a historical crossroads. The intersection once connected early settlers and played a pivotal role in shaping the development of the Region. At the museum, you will step into a realm where past and present meet seamlessly, as the museum acts as a gateway to the Doon Heritage Village. This village authentically depicts life in the early 1900s, offering visitors a glimpse into the spirit, entrepreneurship, and determination of the Region’s early settlers.
Our team constructed a visionary expansion to the existing Curatorial Centre with a design inspired by the charming barns of the Waterloo Region. Here you will find an exhibit design studio, fabrication workshops, storage, and curator offices. The Centre, now 35,000 square feet, serves as a place for the Region’s invaluable artifact collections.
Our team also served as sustainable consultants, building Canada’s first LEED® certified museum. As pioneers in project management, architecture, engineering, and construction management, our team has passionately contributed to the creation of sharing rich and culturally significant stories and artifacts that draw community members and tourists alike.
