Brooklin Community Centre and Library
The Town of Whitby
Multi-Use Recreation Facilities
Perkins + Will Canada
A remnant forest in the historic village of Brooklin, Ontario provides the setting and inspiration for this district Library and Community Centre. Each of the facility’s key program areas (library, community centre and gymnasium) are housed in one of three linked structures whose rooflines and simple forms recall the region’s agrarian roots. Porches, breezeways and glazed links provide common space and provide views of the surrounding hardwood forest.
The programs are accommodated under graceful steel and timber roofs with mezzanines and interconnected floor spaces allowing visual and spatial interaction between them. Construction of the new 2-storey library and community centre included centres for seniors and youth, a gymnasium, banquet and meeting rooms, as well as a public library branch.
