Grant St. PC by Architectural Resources

Design Brief

The Grant Street Community Residence is a dwelling for people who are transitioning from a hospital setting back into the community. The building design sensitively and unassumingly incorporates a 14 bedroom residence into a dense urban neighborhood through careful massing and use of contemporary vernacular building elements and materials.

Breaking from the traditional institutional feel of psychiatric facilities, the design focuses on use of natural, simple materials with plenty of solid wood for millwork and cabinetry. Ceramic tile and linoleum in lieu of vinyl products are used for flooring. Inside and out, generous use of color enhances the therapeutic environment.
