James Bartleman Centre

On the edge of Tallwood Forest at the intersection of two arterial roads (Woodroffe and Tallwood Drive) the new James Bartleman Archives and Library Materials Centre was designed to create a public courtyard linking to a future transit station.

This new facility makes significant connections between the adjacent neighbourhood, the forest and the future transit station. It provides tangible community benefits and includes striking architectural character to a growing part of the city on a major community transit and transportation corridor.

The LEED® Gold facility houses two separate and complementary functions: A new home for the City of Ottawa’s archival records and collection of items under the stewardship of the City of Ottawa Central Archives and a new location for the City of Ottawa Public Library Materials Distribution and Collections Development/Technical Services groups.

The project has received the following awards:

Ontario Association of Architects - Design Excellence Award, 2012

City of Ottawa - Urban Design Award of Merit - Public Places and Civic Spaces, 2011
