Project Description

Overland Partners • Haven for Hope is a transformational campus for the homeless in downtown San Antonio, Texas. The 22-acre site, a former industrial park with six existing warehouses, is located near critical resources such as a hospital, a medical detox facility, and public transportation. The challenge for this project was to create public spaces that evoke a campus feeling. Three new structures were added, raising the total to 300,000 square feet of interior space. The buildings accommodate diverse functions that include housing, meal service, job-training sessions, and delivery of medical care, educational programs, and behavioral health services. “It’s a good cause, and good design,” said juror John Cary. Yolande Daniels expressed concern about the complex’s layout, worrying that it could be construed as too institutional or even prisonlike. “That’s funny, because the site plan is one of the things I really loved about it,” said Bill Valentine. “Especially for that use, it’s just warm and friendly.”
