Project Details

METAFOR has worked collaboratively with the Palliative Care Society, the Town of Canmore, and the indigenous community to deliver a program calling for eight beds, a palliative care “hub”, a day program providing respite care, grief counseling, and public and professional education.

As a result, the Bow Valley Hospice provides an inclusive home-like setting for families, caregivers, and residents alike. Located in the town of Canmore, the facility is surrounded by majestic views of the Rockies and spectacular forested landscapes.

    The building is divided into four quadrants for residents, visitors, staff, and logistic support spaces.

    The quadrants are designed to work not only with the landscape design of the site, but to also provide a woven network of indoor and outdoor spaces and views that respond to the surrounding scale of residential development. This offers residents numerous opportunities within the facility to connect with family, caregivers, and the surrounding natural environment.
