MJMArchitects: Chinguacousy Park Renewal

MJMArchitects: Chinguacousy Park Renewal | New Architecture |

MJMArchitects' park renewal plan has made Chinguacousy Sports Park a hub of activity.

The local Brampton, Ontario landmark has three new pavilions which create a variety of environments suitable for a number of recreational activities. Together they lay a foundation for new activities and facilities to develop in the future. Sustainable features such as water retention systems, reflective rooves, recycled materials, highly efficient mechanical systems, and energy management controls modernize the park with a low impact on the environment.

A new park amenities and boat pavilion at the north pond connects the water course to the land activities; its wood cladding blends into the environment while framing views of the park. Deep overhangs not only contribute to passive cooling, but blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces by physically and visually connecting the pavilions with the landscape. 

This effect is complemented by new lighting, landscaping and pedestrian paths throughout the park- view more photos at the link.
