Brookes Westshore School

CO EDUCATIONAL BOARDING SCHOOL

Colwood, BC

Brookes Education Group’s Westshore school is situated on 1.2 hectares of woodland bisected by Colwood Creek and its riparian biology. Three buildings comprising

classrooms, a dormitory, and a gymnasium, are clustered between the highway and

regional recreational trail around a central courtyard. Half of the three hundred students are in residence at the dormitory, the other half arrive from the East on the pedestrian bridge spanning the Creek. The compact design provides a lively space-between-spaces and expansive views from which to appreciate nature.
