Toronto Montessori Schools — Bayview Campus
Client: Toronto Montessori Schools
With: Farrow Partners
Completion: In Progress
Toronto Montessori Schools (TMS) is a not-for-proft independent school with two
campuses in Richmond Hill and students ranging in age from 18 months to 18
years. The TMS Lower School Campus at Bayview Avenue delivers a seamless
educational experience for students through to Grade 6, challenging them to
discover the best of who they are and to achieve their full potential.
Quinn is providing complete landscape architectural services as part of Farrow
Partners’ design for expansion of the existing building. The landscape design
features a new entrance plaza that is a comfortable and safe arrival and gathering
space with socialization opportunities for students and the school community.
The design includes seating and extensive planting with a variety of native and
adaptive ornamental species. As part of the concept to provide an access road
alongside the adjacent Doncrest Valley conservation area, Quinn developed a
planting scheme to provide additional trees in coordination with Toronto Region
Conservation Authority requirements. Project construction commenced in 2018
and is scheduled for completion in 2019.
