项目简介:
来自建筑师的介绍。YMCA(Young Men's Christian Association 基督教青年会)是加拿大西部最新,最吸引人的健康设施之一,服务于Calgary市及周边地区的居民,主导该地区的健康服务和社区精神建设。YMCA宽阔的玻璃幕墙与明亮开放的空间产生了一种联系感,以引起居民的兴趣并鼓励他们参与。作为一个新城市社区的繁华中心,该设施体现了Calgary市建设充满活力社区的战略,内部特色设施有休闲场地、比赛专用泳池、热水浴池、桑拿房、室内体育场、跑步道、健身房、日托、儿童看护和公共图书馆
 
设计特点
以创造一个内容广泛并且互相关联的室内环境为原则,GEC开启了一个多功能项目用以最大化联系项目里的元素。传统的健康设施通常将项目中的元素分开,而Remington YMCA提倡将这些活动整合。在设施中间功能区,使用者可以看见游泳池、装有玻璃外墙的体育馆、图书馆和日托所。一个指挥中心引导游客到每个不同的活动区。头顶上,一条悬浮的跑步道围绕着体育场,给空间增加了动感。大面积的玻璃使自然光进入照亮了大部分的空间,并在视觉上将用户与外界联系在一起。木材因为结构、美观性和可持续的特性而在整个设施里得到广泛的运用。胶合木做的梁保证了整个设施的长度,从而实现大跨度的空间,并且为设施增加了一种自然的温暖感。
 
广泛的包容性和无障碍环境是设计的核心,支持所有的功用和使用人群,以创造一个安全且宜人的环境。针对加拿大不断变化的文化和家庭需求,GEC设计了YMCA中心的通用可变化活动室,这是阿尔伯塔省和加拿大少数几个同类型可变化活动室中的一个。通用活动室提供了一个开放的,无障碍的可变化区域,以支持功能上、朝向上和家庭活动的多样性。更多特色设计还包括盲人寻路系统、无障碍环境、阶梯式泳池、双倍宽的走廊和入口,以及一个可以兼容定向声路技术的音频系统。
 
可持续性
YMCA中心采用可持续设计以反映Calgary市独特的态度。场地是现有雨水渠的汇集点,集成了河岸植被和生物保留区的可持续雨水回收技术。热电联合生产系统从天然气中产生电能和热能,有效地减少了能量浪费和温室气体的排放,降低了设施的运行成本,同时节省了一个锅炉和辅助发电机的资产。整个设施获得了LEED黄金认证,采用木材将碳固定到建筑材料中,有效地减少了碳排放。
 
Remington YMCA的设计以社区和联系为核心,是对不断发展的环境一次智慧的,包容性的回应,整个设施传达了居民和所在城市所形成的一种个性。

Text description provided by the architects. The Remington YMCA is among the newest and most striking wellness facilities in western Canada, serving the citizens of Calgary and the surrounding area as a polestar for health, wellness, and community spirit. The YMCA’s expansive glazing and bright, open spaces invoke a sense of connection, sparking interest and encouraging participation. As a bustling hub in a new urban community, the facility embodies the City of Calgary’s strategy to build vibrant communities, and features leisure and competition pools, a hot tub and sauna, a gymnasium, running track, fitness area, daycare, childminding, and public library.
 
 
 
Design Features
Guided by the goal to create an inclusive and connected interior environment, GEC developed a functional program that maximizes connections between program elements. While traditional wellness facilities typically separate each program element, the Remington YMCA celebrates the integration of activities. From the central spine of the facility users can see the natatorium, the glass-walled gymnasium, the library, and the daycare. One central control point leads a visitor to each distinct activity area. Overhead a floating running track encircles the gymnasium adding dynamic energy to each space. Extensive glazing allows natural light to illuminate most spaces and visually connects users with the outdoors. Timber is used prominently throughout the facility for its structural, aesthetic, and sustainable qualities. The glulam beams run the length of the facility supporting the long-span spaces and lending a natural warmth to the urban facility.
 
 
Universal inclusiveness and accessibility were pillars of the design, supporting all abilities and demographics for a safe, welcoming environment. Responding to Canada’s evolving cultural and family needs, GEC designed the YMCA’s universal changeroom: the first of its kind in Alberta and among few in Canada. The universal change room provides an open, barrier-free change area to support a diversity of abilities, orientations, and family arrangements. Additional design features include brail wayfinding, a barrier-free environment, pool-lifts, double-wide corridors and entries, and an audio system compatible with acoustic guidance technologies.?
 
 
Sustainability
The Remington YMCA is sustainably designed to reflect a uniquely Calgarian perspective. The site is the terminus for the existing storm water canal and has integrated sustainable storm water techniques including riparian vegetation and bio retention areas. The heat and power co-generation system, which produces electrical and thermal energy from natural gas, significantly reduces waste energy and greenhouse gas emissions, the operational cost of the facility, and the capital costs of a boiler capacity and backup generator. The use of timber throughout this LEED? Gold certified facility effectively sequesters carbon in the material reducing the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere.
 
 
With community and connectivity at its core, the design of the Remington YMCA is an intelligent, inclusive response to an evolving environment. The facility expresses a character shaped by the citizens and the city it serves.
