The Story

The Transforming Windsor Law project at the University of Windsor involved renovating and transforming the Ron W. Ianni Faculty of Law Building, which was built in 1970. The project aimed to make the building more accessible and create new collaborative student spaces that support the Windsor Law program. The project also aimed to maximize natural daylight to create a welcoming space for students, connect with local Indigenous Peoples and communities, and promote environmental sustainability, health, and wellbeing.

Key Features:

  • Accessible entries to the ground floor from the exteriors
  • Accessible circulation through floor levels provided by new elevators
  • Accessible classrooms and forum areas
  • New accessible north entrance
  • New openings in façade
  • Enhanced visual connections through interior spaces
  • Glazing around existing light wells to allow natural light to penetrate the centre of the building
  • New student zone in existing penthouse mechanical room
  • Several rooftop units.
