This thesis explores the idea of home for the homeless individual who has made the decision to seek assistance for issues of addiction or mental illness and wants to transition to permanent housing in the future through place-making. This thesis examines how home can be reinterpreted to provide the homeless individual with a place where they can focus on themselves while providing them with access to programmes and resources. Working within the Trinity Bellwoods neighbourhood of Toronto, transitional housing and services are strategically integrated into the existing urban fabric to provide individuals with the opportunity to achieve their goals while promoting community, equality and respect.
