Created for Vrancor, Oasis is a 40,000 sq.ft. office complex at the intersection of Mainway and Lampman in Burlington. The program consisted of maximizing the amount of commercial office space that could be developed on the site while maintaining a landscaped area of at least 25%. The client was looking for an innovative and flexible solution in a region that is dominated by box style offices and light industrial buildings. Oasis is comprised of two equal wings that extend from an entry courtyard, reminiscent of a Palladian structure. The second floor bridges the two sections and the ground level units are stepped to provide individual identity.
The light coloured metal panels and the rounded edges provide a clear contemporary quality. Two levels of parking are tucked into an existing landscaped berm at the rear of the property, separating the commercial and residential use.
