Front Street Seniors Housing

Location: Whitehorse, YT
Area: 48,000 sf
Year: 2016
Client: Yukon Housing Corp / Yukon Governement
Contractor: NGC Builders Ltd.

Located adjacent to Shipyards Park, this four-storey wood frame building is comprised of 48 suites designed to accommodate a higher level of mobility and support for aging in-place. Of those, 10 suites are fully barrier-free. Amenities within the building include common meeting spaces, secure storage, and common access roof decks. 

Gabled roofing, deck guardrail treatment and canopies help reduce the buildings visual scale making it feel less institutional, and more relatable to residential houses. This helps gives residence a sense of home.

 In collaboration with Thibodeau Architecture + Design
