Walnut Hall School

Walnut Hall Elementary School was a proposed redevelopment project for one of Toronto’s last remaining Edouardian structures (abandoned and in disrepair at the time). The project design aimed to make use of the lo-rise landscape in the surrounding Sherbourne/Shuter area by emphasizing an environmentally-driven curriculum. Gardens, permeable indoor/outdoor classroom boundaries and seasonal changes were all highlighted through the architecture and curriculum.

Walnut Hall was a 4th year thesis project for Ryerson University’s Interior Design program.
