VANIER CENTRAL - MASTER PLAN
Location: 250 Montreal Road, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada Studio 6: Comprehensive Urban Housing Term: Fall 2018 Professor: Benjamin Gianni A collaboration between Guillermo Bourget Morales and Andrea Tamayo Bernal.
In the past decade, the City of Ottawa has worked closely with architects and developers to formulate a future based on a sustainable model of urban living. Vanierâ€™s favorable proximity to Ottawaâ€™s downtown core makes it the ideal target for urban redevelopment and gentrification.
STREET ED OLMST
The proposed masterplan for Vanier Central features multi-story residential buildings, family detached townhouse units, work-live studios, institutional buildings, and a variety of commercial programmes that are meant to revitalize the dynamism of Montreal Road.
Residential buildings are placed in close proximity to Montreal road to provide residents with close proximity to transportation routes. Buildings that accomodate both Residential and Commercial uses are located along Montreal Road to Activate the life of the street. An existing school and a new institution amalgamets the Institutional Program requirement. They are located in a more intimate spot within the larger context. Building Use
Co-work office spaces are accomodated in an existing office building. Public ammenities, such as a library is placed on the West block to provide new services to the neighbourhood. Single detached homes are kept to respect the currrent residents of the neighbourhood. St. Margarets church is a Heritage building wich becomes an extension of the Public Programme of the Site. Large existing office building on the West block is repurposed to accomodate co-work offices.
Multi-Storey Residential buildings along Place Dupuis are also kept intact. The elementary school fronting one of the main housing blocks is kept to serve families with children. A Pedestrian path crosses the blocks next to Montreal Road. It provides a route for people to displace from East to West. The portion of Place Dupuis closer to montreal road is pedestrian and ends in the celebrated public plaza that acts as a magned for social gatherings.. Institutional buildings are linked together by a diagonal path and share a large park on the back of the site.
A diagonal path links the hosuing superblock with the elementary school. Pedestrian Paths SHADING ANALYSIS DURING WINTER + SUMMER SOLSTICE
Preliminary site shading analysis revealed the shadow footprint of low rise buildings vs. medium rise ones. We decided to keep our buildings low rise for two reasons:
