This three-storey building features drug and alcohol detox facilities, in-patient rehabilitation, offices, a central courtyard, and public meeting spaces, transition units, youth detoxification, family units and shared support spaces.
This design was created through a collaborative process with Yukon Government Health & Social Services and Alcohol and Drug Services Division. The process also engaged key stakeholders and user groups, who’s feedback influenced design elements such as First Nations’ cultural spaces, minimizing the institutional feel through natural materials, and increasing connections to outdoor spaces.
In collaboration with Thibodeau Architecture + Design and Kerns Mancini Architects.
