THE SCOTT BUILDING
The Scott Building project is an opportunity to reinvigorate an existing heritage building and create the beginning of a new, vibrant residential community in Victoria, Canada.
Our designs include plans for 119 new homes across the updated heritage structure and a new wood-framed contemporary building. The two elements are connected by an internal landscaped courtyard and a recessed, light-filled glass entrance. Fitness and community rooms on the top floor open out onto a rooftop terrace allowing views north, west and south across the city.
Cafés, shops and commercial spaces will animate the ground floor and provide new amenities for residents and the neighbourhood.
The century-old Scott Building will be carefully retained and restored to maintain and uncover its heritage character, while updated building components will be implemented to meet modern building codes, energy requirements, and support the health and comfort of residents and visitors.
