A changeroom and lunchroom for bus drivers. That is the very prosaic program of this very beautiful building in Oakville, which I recently wrote about for Azure. (PDF is here.)
The architects, Bortolotto, have truly made something out of nothing: the site (Google Map) is as uninspiring as you can imagine, the budget was not huge, and in most contexts a structure like this would be a shed. (A decorated shed, if you’re lucky.) This project, which they’ve dubbed Pit Stop, is special.
