new lease of life

Vancouver, BC

This proposal provides high-quality affordable accommodation for seniors and visiting students. The proposed environmentally sustainable building replaces accommodation currently located in two existing buildings that are beyond repair. A wide range of unit sizes are provided, including accessible studio units and family sabbatical units (as provided in the existing buildings). A large south-facing amenity room addresses the rear gardens and has an extended roof overhang for solar-shading.

Two other apartment buildings on the Calling Ministries site are having voluntary envelope/mechanical-system upgrades to dramatically improve the health/comfort of the residents, whilst significantly increasing the buildings’ value, energy-efficiency and life-span.
