Located in south Buffalo, this project encompasses the construction of a new 24-bed two-story wood framed replacement facility for an existing 18-bed Community Residence.
The new replacement facility features unique residential setting, blending into the context and vernacular of the neighborhood setting. As part of the design process, we included Community involvement in a series of work sessions and incorporated their collective voices into the design to mitigate impact and seek consensus.
The interior incorporates visual residential cues in the progression of entering the facility similar to a regular home. As one enters, a living room, dining room, monumental stair and kitchen welcome the resident and visitors alike to promote healing and comfort.
