Project Profiles > Lyle S. Hallman Institute For Health Promotion, University of Waterloo



The Applied Health Sciences faculty provides research and teaching in the fields of Kinesiology, Leisure Studies and Recreology. This three-storey addition creates much needed office, meeting and seminar room space. This is the third addition to the original Burt Matthews Hall and is situated directly in front of the north entrance to the campus.


Constructed of red brick and glazed curtain wall, this addition blends and extends the styles and materials of the existing building and subsequent additions. Canopies and courtyards on either side of the building provide both a sense of place and entrance to this section of the campus and serve to tie the various components of the building complex to one another and to the landscape.


Project completed under Certificate of Practice issued to Robertson Simmons architects inc. prior to firm name change to MartinSimmons Architects Inc.
