This is the new home of Cool Aid’s Shelter and Transitional Housing. It was designed with a colourful industrial architectural theme and with an interesting arrangement of forms. Such durable materials as masonry, Galvalume, Swiss Pearl, and coated steel create a colourful display. The design for this shelter addresses the resident’s need for safety and privacy, and provides services in an environment which contributes to their sense of dignity and self-worth. This project has been designed to LEED Gold standards.
