Details :

This project, very confined by the site, was a challenge in terms of planning and bringing the building up to standards of the "Régie du Bâtiment". At the beginning an apartment building, transformed progressively in seniors housing and finally extended to the present measurements while keeping it perfectly integrated to the original and general architecture of the street where it is.

A project as a any other for seniors:
In one hand to think the existing building to make it more functional and more pleasant to live and to make it compliant or as near as possible to be in conformity with the National Building Code.


The solarium

In the other hand to extend, to add some bedrooms to help towards the profitability of the establishment, but with very little space, an inflexible confinement between no construction margins and property lines very close!

A frontal view


Simple in appearance, but in fact a challenge, steps by the township, discussions with the "Régie du Bâtiment" about derogations and equivalent or compensatory measures, because it is necessary to make best with ten constraints...

Solarium interior view


Here is a typical case made of compromises and successes!
Unavoidable compromises, successes for one life more pleasant for the residents and easier work  for the staff!

A view from the elevator exterior door



Confinement on the side, but access to the security exit, door for the ambulance men and the 7 feet elevator (platform lift) opening, on the one hand, on the outside and, in the other hand, on the inside.
So, not other ramp need for the accessibility without obstacle for people in wheel chair!
