Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that works around the world to build affordable housing and promotes the purchase of housing as a way to end the cycle of poverty. His actions are supported by many volunteers and the communities in which the organization is involved.
Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has the right to safe, affordable and decent housing. The organization works to ensure that this fundamental right is accessible to all.
Habitat for Humanity believes in the worth and dignity of every human being. The organization is respectful of the people it serves and those who contribute to the organization’s mission. Humans are the most valuable resource of the organization.
It is my pleasure to share one of our latest duplex projects in the Saint-Henri neighborhood in Montreal. Habitat for Humanity initiated the project and we volunteered for the organization and the family owner.
I believe in the involvement of professionals in communities and in the added value of the architect’s work in society. As a building professional, our ability to transform a spatial issue into a creative, elegant and sustainable solution that perfectly meets the needs of humans is essential to the redevelopment of city neighborhoods and the appropriation of places and living environments by the new owners.
Mutual support, autonomy, the valorization of skills, the transmission of know-how, the pride and the appropriation of places of life by families are the values at the base of projects like this one. It is with pride that we collaborated in the design and planning of the Duplex on Bourassa Street for Habitat for Humanity. We will be pleased to renew our involvement with Habitat for Humanity for the construction of the next building.
