Design

Every aspect of Therme Canada | Ontario Place is designed with nature, sustainability, and environmental efficiency in mind

Creating a Place for All

Therme Canada | Ontario Place is designed to connect people with the waterfront while celebrating the beauty of organic design and honouring the architectural history of Ontario Place.

The design, led by Diamond Schmitt and Therme ARC, is grounded in the planned expansion of public park space, providing improved access to expanded parkland, a beach, and the extension and enhancement of the William G. Davis Trail across the entire site, including providing a new link to the mainland from the West Island. It will create a year-round landmark waterfront destination, reconnecting people to Lake Ontario.

Highly Efficient & Sustainable

Therme Canada | Ontario Place will be one of the most sustainable and resilient large-scale projects in Canada. Therme Group builds advanced, LEED certified buildings to meet the highest levels of sustainability in every aspect of design, construction, and operation. Therme Group uses nature as the reference point for all its design, architectural and engineering techniques – replicating organic patterns in our built environment.

Therme Group’s advanced air and water purification and energy saving technologies help reduce its environmental impact and creates a comfortable and clean experience for visitors and staff.

Built for Canadian Winters

Therme Group is aware of the unique weather and environmental characteristics of the Lake Ontario waterfront in Toronto. The organic structure of the building is designed to work within the entire ecosystem of the new Ontario Place while standing strong in high winds and harsh Canadian winters.

Therme Group’s patented glazing technology uses large sheets of glass and retractable roofs to connect visitors with surrounding landscapes, all while meeting the requirements of LEED Platinum status.

 

“Therme is grounded in the planned expansion of public park space. It honours and celebrates Ontario Place’s history, including the Pods and Cinesphere. We designed the West Island of Ontario Place to connect people to the water year-round. Our design weaves three themes, expressed through architecture: exhibition pavilions; natural forms; and greenhouse architecture.”
