Ward 8 Temporary Housing

Project: Ward 8 Temporary Housing
Client: DC Department of General Services

The inspiration for this project is rooted in the comfort, healing and lifting up of the human spirit through architecture and interior design. The use of natural light, natural materials and art are integrated into the architectural concept design for the Ward 8 Shelter. As you approach the building by foot or vehicle, we envision a series of inspirational messages that signal a welcome to a place of respite. During this approach, you will get glimpses of the glass stair tower with vertical accents that inspire an upward movement to remind us of the climb required to make the world a better place for all. At the top of the stair tower is a sacred garden for which we strive to attain.
