Housing for Young Adults with Disabilities
North Vancouver, British Columbia
PWL donated services to this terrific project in North Vancouver; Housing for Young Adults with Disabilities (HYAD) in partnership with VIA Architecture and Terra Housing. HYAD is a non-profit society formed by parents of disabled youth for the purpose of providing semi-independent living for their kids. The parents started planning in 2005 and through extensive collaboration with government, the School Board, and BC Housing, funded a facility that will allow their now young adult children to be productive and active members of the community. PWL Partnership prepared conceptual plans, construction drawings and performed field reviews. Going beyond our typical project scope, we also installed plant material and held gardening workshops with parents and residents.
