Goldring Student Center

Goldring Student Center

Moriyama & Teshima Architects

Toronto, Ontario

Creating the Goldring Student Center on The Victoria College Campus at University of Toronto provided much-needed space for meeting rooms, student government offices and more than 20 student clubs, a renovated cafe, two-story lounge, assembly space, landscaped quad courtyard and the addition of lockers for commuter students. Moriyama and Teshima preserved many of the iconic heritage features of the former student union building built in 1952, a historically listed building.

The infill project in uptown Toronto required new landscaping for the entire site and the addition of a new fire route. Site services were carefully designed and permeable paving was chosen for lane-ways, pedestrian and vehicular components in order to meet municipal limits for the ratio of impervious surface area on the project.

Unilock Eco-Optiloc™ pavers were chosen to deliver high infiltration rates and heavy-duty vehicular capacity. Two colors, natural and charcoal, were used to integrate wayfinding in the space. These pedestrian and bicycle paths and roadways provide access and harmony through the site.
