2013 EXCELLENCE AWARD FOR MIXED-USE
This project features an unusual combination of uses in a low rise, low density suburban community with commercial below residential, making the neighbourhood more walkable and attractive. The building form is unique in that each of the four townhouses is expressed as distinct from their neighbour and each unit is made up of a series of volumes that are articulated by plane and material. Green initiatives include the use of a geo-thermal heating/cooling system. Located across from a community soccer field and in a prime location for many university students, Township Coffee Co. currently occupies one of the commercial spaces in this new building, providing a community amenity that was not previously present.
