Kaitlyn’s Cottage provides skilled respite daycare services for physically and mentally challenged children. By providing a safe, caring, and home-like environment, kids can spend quality structured time at the cottage allowing their caregivers a respite as well.
The project adds a large multipurpose space to allow for indoor physical activities. The challenge of creating a large space while not overwhelming the existing facilities is achieved by breaking up the mass of the building and utilizing similar residential type materials and detailing. The conventionally framed structure utilizes exposed heavy timber roof trusses and SIPs (structural insulated panel) roofing.
