“Residential design that responds to the beauty of the natural ravine landscape”
Bennett Village is a premium 60-plus life lease community located along the picturesque Halton Hills trail system in Southern Ontario.
Developed by Bennett Healthcare, a not-for-profit charitable organization, the 11 storey facility provides 105, one and two bedroom residential apartments for active seniors. Seven different suite types are offered alongside shared amenities such as a wellness centre, various activity rooms and a library.
The design solution breaks up the building mass into two bars that slide past each other. Projecting balconies provide further animation, also supported by the two tone brick parti of the façade. The main entrance and lobby is highlighted by a canopy and an assortment of natural materials which present a warm and welcoming face to the facility.
The design preserved an existing wood lot, allowing residents to enjoy the beauty of the natural landscape, magnificent ravine views and a natural stream which runs through the 18 acre site. A large landscaped terrace looks out over the ravine creating a direct link for residents to the outdoors.
This building is situated above two levels of underground parking, which resulted in complex site issues related to the conservation authority and maintaining the underground water flows to the creek.
Completion Date: 2010
Project Type: Retirement
Building Size: 154,000 sq. ft.
