YWCA Elm Centre

YWCA Elm Street Residence – Non Profit Affordable Housing for Women. Winona’s Place, a shared community space.  Hilditch Architect
Winter/Spring 2012
The YWCA required furniture for Winona’s Place and recognized an opportunity for furniture students and the resident women to collaborate on its design and creation.  In partnership with Public Displays of Affection, a series of design brainstorming sessions were conducted with the tenants  and  furniture students of Sheridan College to generate design ideas. The students presented drawings and models to the tenants for feedback and approval, and fabricated over 20 pieces of furniture specific to the needs of the women living there.
