Hobin BGC Ottawa ~ Taggart Parkes Family Clubhouse

Building a better future BGC (formerly Boys and Girls Club) Ottawa is a registered charity providing programming to children and youth in vulnerable neighbourhoods. Each year, BGC provides services to over 4,500 young Members. As part of the Hobin Architecture Team, 4té worked to create the Taggart Parkes Family Clubhouse for BGC Ottawa. This fast-tracked project was a result of government funding for a much needed facility in the south-end, and as such was fully designed and built in 2021. The facility was designed therefore with function as its prime consideration.

Distinguishing features Bright BGC branding colourways to feature each type of space and provide wayfinding to users. Green is used for reception and teaching kitchen spaces, deep blue for the gymnasium, orange for the homework space, and a light blue for the dance studio. COVID-19 considerate facilities were also created for the space, including universal and individual washroom facilities, multiple additional egress points to the outdoors, and easily cleanable, durable materials. Due to the charitable nature of this organization, donations were a major portion of the success of the project. Products, services, and financial donations were made and recognition thereof is placed throughout the space in plaques and “donor walls” to acknowledge this generosity.
