University of Manitoba Helen Glass Centre for Nursing

As a major post secondary health care education facility, the Helen Glass Centre for Nursing is the University of Manitobas state-of-the-art, home for the Faculty of Nursing, completed as a fast-track project in a record 13 months for design and construction.

The main entry is delineated with a full height glazed bay window curtain wall and accent canopy trellis. The compact form and atrium concept ensures that all offices and teaching spaces have access to natural light within a minimal perimeter envelope, enhancing energy efficiency. The atrium features an open cantilevered stair encouraging informal meetings/collaborations.
