This 224 unit project consists of studio and one bedroom special needs housing in a twelve storey building, two floors of support and retail services and three level underground parkade in a downtown location. It is a progressive and sustainable apartment building providing low-income housing. Twenty-two units are designed with accessible or barrier free kittens and bathrooms and work desks.

A history of design for disabilities
"community based design"
Affordable Housing for Public Sector and Private Institutions
Our early design experience was designing government extended health care facilities.
In Alberta affordable housing projects that are built with government funds must provide a percentage of the total dwellings as accessible or adaptable units. While our largest project was the Mustard Seed Centre 1010 our experience encompasses numerous 'entry level' affordable wood framed townhouse projects for private developers.
Accessible Housing Design - both new and retrofit
Whether designing a new house or re-designing an existing one to accommodate new or existing disabilities we have experience to assist with the daily living activities of residents. We have designed both new homes and renovated existing to accommodate accessible elevators or chair lifts, new kitchens, bathrooms, wider hallways and wider doors enhancing the quality of life for people.
