Transforming end of life care
Architect: MMMC Architect
Client: Hospice Vaughan
Project Type: Structural Engineering
Since 1995, Hospice Vaughan, a not-for-profit organization, has been providing compassionate support to individuals facing a life-limiting illness or the loss of a loved one. Providing in-home visiting volunteers, a day program and grief and bereavement support.
A new 25,100 sf hospice facility located in Vaughan, Ontario, this project consists of a two-storey steel-framed core with precast concrete floors and two single-storey wings constructed with cold-formed steel load-bearing walls. This project also incorporates exposed Nail Laminated Timber roof slabs and Glulam members to provide a warm, inviting space while creating a unique building form.
