“The lanterns, covered porches, ship-lap siding and sloped roofs are intended to capture the spirit of a vernacular maritime architecture.”
The design of Tideview Terrace, a new 90 bed long term care facility in Digby, Nova Scotia, focuses on the creation of distinct, residentially scaled ‘houses’ within the overall facility.
Each house features its own front door entrance from the street, which is given distinction through a tall lantern feature. The houses are arrayed about the site, creating excellent views to the water or to gardens. The individual resident houses are fully interconnected through a background building which houses service program areas to support staff and residents.
Care has been taken in the design to utilize materials and forms that will create a meaningful and contemporary interpretation of local traditions and ways of building. The lanterns, covered porches, ship-lap siding and sloped roofs are intended to capture the spirit of a vernacular maritime architecture.
This project is targeting LEED Gold Certification. This project is in association with WHW Architects.
