Beanfield Centre Hotel X Pedestrian Bridge
Toronto, ON, Canada
Developer: Exhibition Place, The Library Hotel Collection
Architect: NORR Architects & Engineers Limited
Building type: Mixed-use
Exhibition Place, Canada’s largest entertainment and business events venue, aimed to connect its historic convention facility with a new luxury hotel. They wanted
to create a seamless pathway between the two structures that would blend well with the existing buildings. To achieve this, they constructed an elevated walkway using a steel truss framework and floor-to-ceiling insulated glass. The walkway’s exterior cladding and soffits featured Cladify panels with natural Indiana limestone, providing a visually cohesive link while keeping it lightweight and unobtrusive.
