The Shane Homes YMCA at Rocky Ridge is the first recreational facility built for northwest Calgary; it serves a community of more than 100,000 residents. The curvilinear design of the facility was inspired by the rolling foothills of the surrounding landscape. Glulam timber is the primary structural component. This versatile material allowed for a geometrically complex design at considerably less cost than other materials. The dramatic silhouette is defined by the largest freeform timber roof structure in North America.
