Robert McLaughlin Gallery Expansion Oshawa, Ontario, Canada Designed 1984 The expansion was designed around the original 1969 gallery structure, incorporating the original stone facade into the dramatic lobby which is flooded with natural light, skylights, and soaring 35 foot ceilings. The gallery was tripled in size following the expansion, enabling the gallery to mount traveling exhibitions at the same time as displaying portions of their permanent collection. The design organizes circulation along a central corridor-spine with a vaulted skylight. In addition to two new galleries, two enlarged existing galleries and a gift shop, the main floor contains a large sky-lit lobby suitable for art displays, exhibition openings, and other cultural events. The lower floor contains an education facility with two studio classrooms and a library. Over the main entrance, the glazed bowed front holds a 55-seat restaurant.
