CSV Architects has designed an addition that will integrate with, and make best use of the land and existing building. The proposed addition links to the existing building with 6-floors, 58 new residential units, plus health services support space. The environmental goal is targeting LEED Platinum.
Central to the KDS vision for the new building is the co-location of health related support services on the lowest floor level with Carefor, the service provision and equity partner. The design accommodates a health support program amenity to be used as a multi-purpose space for seniors programming as an adult day program. This amenity space will include a small commercial kitchen for providing hot lunches to the day program participants. Additionally, in order to address the needs of the seniors residents and to provide for an age-in-place model, a clinic will provide foot-care, wound care, flu vaccinations, insulin shots, physiotherapy and other general nursing supports for seniors.
