  • Proposed Site Plan
  • Preliminary Park Design
  • Preliminary Park Design
  • Studio Barn • 26 affordable live/work studios, ranging in size from 445 to 1050 SF, plus 15 work only studios which can be leased independently of the live/work studios •‘Live’ address to Benson, ‘Work’ address internal to covered street and park. • East end space available to lease for community use.
  • Perspective Section of Studio Barn
  • Covered Street • A place for people to come together and meet. Public space for exhibitions, craft fairs, readings, community meetings and gatherings. • Provides a way through the site while giving access to adjacent work studios and community spaces. • Occupies the original 1913 barn, preserving the historical form of this linear space, while providing a thermal buffer to adjacent spaces.
  • View of Covered Street
  • Community Barn • Affordable rental space available in a range of sizes for community based arts and environmental organizations. Public washrooms accessible to both building and park users. Elevator provides accessibility to the upper level. • Double height galleria space provides access to 2nd level, interconnecting the covered street with the sheltered garden and park.
  • View of Galleria/Lobby in Community Barn
  • Green Barn • Accessible greenhouse with a temperate climate environment for starting seedlings and growing organic produce. A sheltered community garden including a gathering space with a bake oven. Transition space from building to park • Environmental education programs related to horticulture, community gardening, composting, and organic food growing.
  • View of Sheltered Garden
  • Public Circulation Live/Work Units Community Space/Work Studios Greenhouse Ground Floor Plan
  • Benson Avenue Elevation
  • Environmental Features Overall Approach • Project to be submitted for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification – objective is Gold rating. • Green Barn to provide educational programming related to sustainability and ecological food production. • The project will explore a range of approaches to sustainability – social, financial, and cultural, as well as building-related systems.
  • Environmental Features Sustainable Site • Brownfield redevelopment - Existing industrial buildings recycled and retrofitted with new uses. • Transformation of remaining open space into public park use, integrated with building design. • Stormwater retention in cistern(s). • Emphasis on pedestrian, transit and bicycle use – no onsite parking provided. • Minimize light pollution – Emphasis on use of low-rise pathway and entrance security lighting.
  • Environmental Features Energy Conservation • Compact arrangement of adjacent barn structures conducive to energy conservation with covered street acting as an energy buffer to adjacent spaces. Thermal mass benefit derived from arrangement of long east/west masonry wall configuration, with skylight exposure. Provide upgrade to the insulation level of the entire building. • Use of ground source heat pumps combined with high efficiency mechanical equipment to heat and cool the building, with local comfort control in diverse program areas. • Air and water heat recovery systems employed throughout. • Emphasis on use of natural day-lighting, with high efficiency light fixtures specified throughout.
  • Environmental Features Water Conservation • Collected stormwater used for irrigation within greenhouse, sheltered garden and potentially throughout the adjacent park space. • Collected stormwater used for toilet flushing in both public and private washrooms provided. • Use of low-volume, high-efficiency plumbing fixtures throughout. • Objective of eliminating any storm-water sewer discharge off site.
  • Environmental Features Materials and Resources • Existing surplus building components reused for art materials or for clean fill to be used on site. • Facilities designed to accommodate source-separation waste recycling upon occupancy, including on-site composting of organic material. • Construction materials and components specified to have high-ratio recycled content, and to be sourced regionally wherever possible. • Explore use of new products – recycled cladding, solar-tubes, combined fan coil/HRV units, recycled plastic floor grating.
  • Environmental Features Indoor Environmental Quality • Emphasis on use of low-emitting materials • Existing building configuration and window/skylight openings provides high percentage of daylight and views from interior spaces • High degree of local control to occupants for indoor temperature, ventilation and lighting

  • Imagine your city with Nature
  • EVERGREEN - www.evergreen.ca
  • Old ideas can sometimes use new buildings. New ideas must use old buildings. Jane Jacobs
  • Evergreen Brick Works connects us with our geological and industrial past, of how nature, extracted and manufactured locally, built the industrial city of the past. Today, we want to use nature to build a different kind of city - the sustainable city of the future.
  • Purpose Statement Evergreen Brick Works will provoke new ideas about the relationship between nature, people and cities. By capitalizing on the Brick Works’ unique natural and industrial heritage setting, and engaging and educating the community about diverse nature-based experiences, people will be able to become active participants in shaping a more sustainable future.
  • Interpretive Plan
  • Children‟s Experience We want to create a destination and a laboratory for connecting children with nature. In an age of indoor play, cancelled recess, and virtual realities, we want to immerse children in a multi-sensory, low-tech experience. An experience that contains and is inspired by natural systems – interconnected, diverse, changing, and influenced by human hands.
