Permanent Supportive

Housing Model

4th Year Undergraduate Project (2016)


Stantec Prize - First place ($5000 Scholarship)

The fourth year first semester at Carleton Architecture does a deep dive into the world of housing design.  The project that I created for this was a permanent supportive housing model that attempted to challenge many of the entrenched ideas around typical high density housing.  I had been told to religiously maximise private space and minimise shared space.  I decided to flip that equation by minimising the private space to keep rent as low as possible and placing emphasis on community development within a building with large, desirable shared spaces.  I designed this as not just a single building for Ottawa’s Lebreton Flats, but as a template to use when reconsidering building affordable housing throughout the country.
