For the fishing village of Sambro, Nova Scotia, Canada, this project proposes affordable elderly housing, interactive and mixed use spaces where a self-supporting ethos is cultivated among independent and service living accommodations. It reveals the connectors within the project itself and the community at large that will build a healthy, healing, adaptable environment that will not only benefit its residents by actuating the paradigm of ageing as lifestyle, but will also contribute to the unification and physical manifestation of the community.
