The new building reconciles the different scale of Vaughan’s City Hall’s Clock tower and historic Sarah Noble/Beaverbrook House. Its reflective facade changes appearance with the light throughout the day. This ever-changing appearance references the constantly-evolving learning environment inside the building and wraps around the volume to form a central interior courtyard.

To create a modern space that reflects the way new digital tools are used in learning, the architects created a flexible layoutthat encourages social interaction. Colorful furniture and natural lighting further animate the spaces and direct visitors to different multi-functional and collaboration spaces, meeting rooms, and lounges. An outdoor garden courtyard features a red maple tree that represents knowledge. Visitors can use computers, 3D printers, a sound recording and video studio with a green screen.
