ATA was awarded this prestigious and exciting renovation project by Humber College. Largely demolished or repurposed, the 2-storey building was converted from a hair dressing school into a new art academy, as part of Humber’s South Campus renewal. The commission required rapid response from the time that the lease was acquired, in order for the space to be open for students in September. With an unsurpassed depth of experience in schools of all kinds, ATA immediately understood what was required to facilitate and inspire the creative process in a modern art academy.
ATA is very excited about the positive response from staff and students for Humber College’s new Art Academy at 3253 Lakeshore Blvd West in Etobicoke. The flexible space serves as both a lab and gallery for students, fostering creativity, collaboration and experimentation.
