Many Deaf-Blind individuals feel unsafe and isolated in their homes. This project aims to provide the Deaf-Blind community with housing that is accessible, safe, and affordable. Winnipeg-architect Steve Cohlmeyer, who designed The Forks, will create tactical and high-constrast living spaces to help individuals differienciate between rooms.
The project will be the first of its kind in the city and province. It's slated to be located at River Avenue and Osborne Street as part of the new Gas Station Arts Centre.
