Planet Bowl

Toronto, Canada | 1996

This state of the art, forty-eight lane 10-pin bowling centre is complete with pro-shop, video arcade and a restaurant.

This large, inexpensive 'box' is carefully screened along the main facade, by playful fragmented volumes of different materials. Metallic siding, aluminum panels, glass tiles and stucco were used to give expression to the various programmatic elements within the project, the most prominent of these being the two storey elliptical entrance piece which is marked by a whimsical entrance canopy.

Project Gross Area: 4,180 m2
