B+H BuntingCoady receives 2011 Canadian Architect Award of Excellence

Heritage Mountain Middle School in Anmore, BC, recognized as a significant Canadian building project

Vancouver, BC – January 23, 2012 – B+H BuntingCoady is pleased to announce that the design for Heritage Mountain Middle School received a 2011 Canadian Architect Award of Excellence. The project was chosen from 204 entries and was featured in the December 2011 issue of Canadian Architect magazine.

The Heritage Mountain Middle School presentation “has a confidence and a muted quality that seems to reflect a design that is very thoughtful and sculpturally powerful, but in a quiet way,” says Diarmuid Nash, Canadian Architects Awards juror. “I think this will be a great school environment to contain and nurture the restless movement, boundless inquisitive energy, and the endless conversations and laughter of young students.”

“We designed many light-filled spaces that integrate into Anmore’s surrounding landscape and allow young students to interact with wild nature,” says design Principal Dwayne Smyth. “Our goal was to create an environment that captivates students’ imaginations while encouraging exploration and growth.”

The Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence has been recognizing significant building projects in Canada since 1968. The program is one of only two national awards dedicated to architecture. “We are honoured to have received this award for design excellence,” says Teresa Coady, President, B+H BuntingCoady.
