Tillicum Lelum Affordable Housing

Nanaimo, BC

Conceptually, this is a large home in the tradition of the Coast Salish Longhouses of the West Coast.  Following that tradition of the extended family, the building provides affordable rental housing, eight units for Elders and 10 units for Youths, arranged to encourage interaction and mentoring around a Great Room offering common space for gathering, dining, and conversation.
