Un City Center

Designer: Vanessa Haddock & Sarah McMurtry
Degree: B. Architecture
School: Carleton University
Year: 2011
Location of Project: City Centre Avenue, Ottawa
Project Status: Unbuilt

[un] City Centre is located at the corner of City Centre Avenue and Somerset Street, in Ottawa. We took interest in the surrounding context of the site, specifically the dense residential and commercial program or green space to the North. The intention was to make the site an anchor integrating these two conditions, linking this segregated area with the rest of the city by introducing a mixed use building that not only offers a residential component but also commercial program. Through this, it becomes a gateway to the city.
