99 SudburyToronto, Ontario
99 Sudbury was a planned 20,000 square foot warehouse renovation and addition. Including a fitness studio, multi-purpose event space, elevated competition squash courts (the ‘skycourts’), a lounge and a terrace, the project was to be built in two phases, each a variation on a single architectonic strategy — developed to negotiate a balance between the intimately private parts of the club and the club’s more public and urban aspect.
The skycourts act as both a beacon and a look-out point of the new volume, nestled as the club is into the existing residential and industrial fabric north of the rail-corridor and away from the activity of the main streets to the north and south of it. Importantly, the location and relatively discrete construction of the skycourts were designed to minimize the impact of their construction on the on-going operation of the club.
