Canadian Back Institute
office & commercial
The Canadian Back Institute is a physical therapy clinic, offering rehabilitation services to the public. To continue serving their growing clientele, CBI required a new larger facility, including a gym area, private treatment rooms, and administration spaces. Support spaces also included a large conference room, file storage, and shower/change facilities. Understanding the importance of natural lighting to the staff and clients of CBI, a series of large windows were incorporated into the gym area to bring in as much sunlight as possible while still ensuring privacy. Each treatment room takes full advantage of natural light as well. An intimate brick colonnade at the front entrance helps diffuse strong westerly winds.
