Donald Gordon Conference Centre

Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario

Interior design for the Donald Gordon Conference Centre sensitively meshed new and renovated space to provide a comfortable and state of the art conference environment—including meeting, break-out, dining and residence facilities for 80 guests. The centrepiece, federally designated as a heritage building, is the handsome 1841 Roselawn House.

A member of the design team lead by Griffiths Rankin Cook Architects, Carlyle Design Associates developed and documented the interior finishes and colour schemes, designed the integrated furniture program, mixing refurbished antique items with an extensive program of new furniture for conference, meeting and public spaces as well as guest accommodations, and administered the implementation process from specifications through procurement to installations.
