Argyle Secondary School
Argyle Secondary School, centrally located in Lynn Valley, North Vancouver, is a two-storey building for 1300 students. It is designed to incorporate 21st century learning. The use of wood featured throughout the building connects the building to the forested site which is situated near the base of Mt. Fromme.
Aspiring to reach LEED Gold certification, Argyle Secondary connects occupants to nature and Kilmer creek through an abundance of exterior glazing. The building is designed to adapt to multiple uses through the use of operable walls and large overhead doors. The hybrid steel and mass timber building allows for collaborative learning through many small learning communities.
Along with the regular school occupants, Argyle is also open to the community with year-round use of the gymnasium and turf field.
