Yellowknife, Northwest Territories
The renovated space houses the Yellowknife Day Shelter and the Sobering Center within a single well-equipped facility. The interior day shelter and rest spaces provides a calm, relaxed and durable space for the city’s most vulnerable people who can struggle to find safety and comfort. Spatial design carefully considered personal security and sight lines to ensure well-being of the staff without feeling unwelcoming to the users.
