“Design that fully integrates mental healthcare into the community”
In combating the stigma long associated with mental illness and addiction, CAMH developed the vision to create an ‘urban village’ for its comprehensive site redevelopment.
Phase 1B speaks to this vision by fully integrating mental healthcare into the community in order to provide a normalised therapeutic treatment environment for clients. By extending the existing fabric of streets surrounding the site, the new buildings are distributed on different city blocks and have mixed-use components that contribute to the revitalisation of both the centre and the neighborhood.
Phase 1B is comprised of the Intergenerational Wellness Centre, an acute patient care facility that provides treatment for Geriatric and Adolescent inpatient & outpatients, as well as outpatient programs for Children, the Bell Gateway Building which combines multiple outpatient services and administration, as well as a stand-alone parking garage and utilities building. Vibrant ground floor spaces such as a gymnasium, occupational therapy kitchen and client-run café animate the new public street. Generous landscaped boulevards and new green spaces provide leisure and recreational use for clients, staff and the community.
