Urban Apothecary :

A parasitic project that completes the urban fabric in the historic neighbourhood of Strathcona in Vancouver. The rational of the project is divided in two programs. An indoor farm that provides vegetables and herbs to complement the African heritage persued by its neighbours. The strucutre is also concentrated around the indoor farm to provide insulation for the plants and maintain an annual average temp of between 19ºC - 21ºC. The rest of the space is a semi-outdoor space. With a roof provided, this space can convert to whatever the space can allow. From a cafe to a studio space.
