KMBR in association with TSL Contractors was awarded this design-build project. The new facility replaces the existing Whitehorse Hospital Mountainside Apartments. A sloped roof visually contextualizes the facility within the City of Whitehorse while addressing the issue of snow loading and shedding. Simple, durable materials were chosen to facilitate ease of construction and not over-burden the facility's aesthetic appearance. Our design achieved value added components not included in the original program including additional tenant office space and vestibules at office entrances which provide increased energy efficiency and occupant comfort. This was achieved by selecting a smaller, more efficient mechanical system and utilizing void space above the central stair tower.
