Aspen Lodge

1/13

STRATHCONA TWEEDSMUIR SCHOOL | KANANASKIS, AB

Combining complex construction with a simple, innovative building - beautifully connected to the outdoor environment.

​Aspen Lodge is a unique, eco-friendly classroom nestled in the forest on the Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (STS) country campus. The project brief was to design a classroom facility with an intimate connection to the outdoors, offering a completely different feel to the other spaces within the school. The goal was enhancing the integrated learning approach at the core of STS programming.

Featuring floor-to-ceiling glass walls around its perimeter, the facility melds into the forest and provides an awesome visual experience. In warmer months, the walls can be effortlessly bi-folded to remove the barrier between outside and in - enhancing the connection to nature. In line with Tree Construction’s commitment to sustainability, Aspen Lodge utilizes recycled timber, evoking a sense of warmth and reciprocity with the natural surroundings. A clean and elegant wood stove amplifies the comfort and further adds to the ambience of this beautiful and unique learning space.
