This is a unique project to collocate and integrate children and youth specialized services into one building. The building is proposed as two equal floor plates designed to allow maximum views of the river and encourage natural light penetration. The building massing represents approximately 20% of the site area. All site specific specifications have been addressed in the proposed site plan including building entrances, on site parking, loading bay, staff/client patio, an off-street heated enclosure, and a therapy/play area. The building materials will contribute to the non-institutional intent of the facility and create a people friendly context. The design reflects the consolidation and ‘bringing together’ of the various organizations.
