Project Description

This project is a winner in the 2017 AIA Housing Awards in the Specialized Housing category.


Heartland Family Works offers four- and six-month residential substance abuse treatment programs in a setting that keeps families intact while giving mothers the intensive, professional support they need to get clean and stay sober. The program also aids in obtaining vocational training, employment, and other social services. Tasked with being good stewards of the client’s resources, and met with the challenge of bringing new life to an existing concrete shell, the design team turned to modernist principles, using the contrast of warm colors and textures to complement the cool palate of the concrete. The result is a space with a residential feel that is timeless and durable, and a hopeful place of healing for the families who live there.
