canadian firm les architectes FABG have redeveloped a mies van der rohe heritage site into a youth and senior activity center
as a tribute to the iconic architect. previously a gas station, the building on nun's island had not been in use since 2008.
two large volumes, which once functioned as a car service area and sales point, are connected by a low steel roof, uniting the structure.
although all the components have been kept and restored, the site serves a different purpose overall.
