This project reimagines a 25’ x 100’ site in the North End of Halifax, Nova Scotia. It advocates for increasing density and livability while also promoting a flexible architecture that accommodates change over time. On a macro level, this project reimagines the limiting site conditions typically found in Halifax—the long and narrow Victorian lots— and creates a new mixed use urban typology based on a modern rendition of the side hall plan. Stretching the form across the site allows daylight into the plan and ground-floor access to multiple units through an inner courtyard. Layering dwelling, working, and cultivation into this tight city lot suggests ways of recalibrating our cities to increase flexibility, density, diversity, and delight.
