Located in the vibrant, historic North End of Halifax, Nova Scotia on a narrow and abandoned lot. The adjacent property was previously the site of a neighbourhood African Nova Scotian barbershop. The project was designed as the primary residence of Omar Gandhi, his partner, and his son, sitting over top of the architecture studios’ east coast home base. However, over the course of the build, the studio grew too large to be accommodated in the modest space. The ground-floor office is now a community studio, focused on projects for the north end of Halifax, including housing for the homeless.
