Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba
IRCOM House Isabel is a non-profit organization that provides secure and affordable housing and support services to Manitoba. The Isabel House is a conversion and retrofit of an existing inner city apartment block into multi sized family units, daycare, community program space and recreational space to temporarily house new immigrants and refugees.
In addition to reconfiguring the interior, the exterior building envelope was completely upgraded including a roof replacement, new fibreglass windows, aluminum curtain wall and prefinished metal cladding. The site was also developed to provide a safe but welcoming courtyard for outdoor activities.
