Abstract: 

Canada is facing an unprecedented demographic shift over the next 50 years; the senior population will be the largest it has ever been, which will put a great strain on the availability of senior housing. Consequently, issues of affordable housing with access to care immediately need to be addressed through an architectural intervention. There is a lack of choice of housing for low income seniors who need or wish to have minimum to moderate care and assistance in the home. This intervention of a multigenerational building provides a home for children, adults, and seniors to live together and
to facilitate care between all residents. By providing both housing for all generations, and shared spaces to be used between all residents, all ages can participate and receive the necessary care while simultaneously creating a community within a shared building.
