Tall Tree Health Centre
Victoria’s Tall Tree Integrated Health Centre expanded into downtown Victoria with Cascadia Architects’ help. Despite high acoustic reflection from the building’s exterior glazing, Cascadia designed a welcoming space inspired by nature. The design featured a central exercise area and 12 treatment rooms, requiring a creative acoustic solution. Cascadia’s vision included an acoustic cloud resembling a forest canopy, crafted EzoBord, to soften the space and mitigate reverberation, enhancing both aesthetics and functionality.
Working closely with Designers from internationally recognized IBI Group, the team created a stunning reception space for Aon’s global services firm. Located on the 20th floor of the trendy, downtown Manulife Place complex, Edmonton, Alberta, the office boasts panoramic views of the city that take full advantage of the vast prairie skyscape.
IBI’s vision was to create a series of custom-build, dramatic Ruby Red acoustic baffles resembling “fins” that appear to move through the reception areas’ glass walls into the heart of the elegant work environment. The visual impression is spectacular, offering a series of organic flow and continuity to visitors and staff working the space.
