Connect Communities Interiors

Michael Muraz Photography as Photographers

Connect Communities is a transitional residence for those recovering from Acquired Brain Injuries or Stroke. The Hamilton facility is their first in Ontario, using a new treatment model that creates a residential environment with 42 bedrooms and ensuites, as well as communal living areas connected by amenity spaces and offices.


This past January, we photographed the interiors of the facility with dpai architecture before it was fully occupied, to avoid being disruptive to the staff and the residents. My approach was to highlight the clean and simple, yet warm design of the space. In several rooms, the views of the windows were framed carefully to highlight the architecture of the other wings of the building.


Despite the difficult circumstances of the patients, the design provides a warm and welcoming environment. I look forward to coming back to photograph the exteriors this summer.
