MUN Forest Centre

a sustainable space for research and gatherings

An extensively glazed atrium at the building’s entry features plantings and exposed wood structure, expressing the facility’s purpose while offering the campus an inviting space for display and informal gatherings.

The MUN Forest Centre at Grenfell Campus in Corner Brook provides space for research and teaching labs, seminar rooms, an insectarium, and remote geographic instrumentation systems. The Forest Centre is home to MUN’s Forestry Program, the Canadian Forest Service of Natural Resources Canada, and the Western Newfoundland Model Forest Inc. The atrium, with its abundance of plant life, high ceilings, and bevy of windows, provides an attractive space for a variety of gatherings. The glass wall in the elevator also provides a unique experience, especially when its taken from the bottom floor and passes through the various levels of soil and rock that lie beneath the building.
