ROOTS WOMEN CENTER
The concept of this project was based on how a plants root structure supports a plant. Without a well-established root structure the plant will neither grow nor become strong. As the plant grows so must its root structure in order to form a healthy foundation. Located at 52 McCaul The Roots Women’s Centre has drawn from this concept and supports women within the community. The entrance to the centre is located within a garden patio setting with a water element to add to the tranquility and harmony of the space. The floors of the building are divided into public and private spaces. The green roof with its solar panels makes the building self sustaining and environmentally friendly. The Roots Women’s Centre acts as a root system reaching out to the community in order to help immigrant women new to Canada. The centre provides them with growth opportunities so that these women will become stronger and integrate into Canadian society.
Plants inspired the concept of this project. The surrounding local consisting of green space supported our original design concept. The plant cell patterns helped create comforting zones located within the buildings floors. The many building levels reflected the different heights that a plants branches achieve in nature.
