Lambton Hall - University Of Guelph

W.S. Tyler

The University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and the administration initiated several construction projects to get the campus in shape for the milestone. From a new entryway at one end of campus to a major residence makeover at the other, buildings have been upgraded, grounds and infrastructure improved. Among the products helping to give the residence hall a contemporary, industrial look is woven wire mesh from W.S. Tyler.

Lambton Hall was built in 1967. The four-story dormitory houses 425 students, mostly in double rooms and with communal washrooms.

The goal was to revitalize the building – its main entry, lobby, lounges, offices and resident rooms. CS&P Architects used the existing exposed concrete structure and oak slat paneling as a basis for new, more contemporary elements such as a copper entry canopy, a new main stair, improved lighting, a vibrant color palette and an updated, barrier-free reception area.

The renovation of the lobby included a full restoration of the staircase. In addition, the wall adjacent to the stairs was clad with architectural wire mesh type EGLA-TWIN 4223. W.S. Tyler supplied the product in ready-to-install panels.

Following a year of work, the building now provides more contemporary resident rooms, including more suite-style accommodations. The woven wire mesh complements the industrial feel of the school and magnifies the clean design of the adjacent walls.
