AIA Pittsburgh Design Award

Women’s Center and Shelter

Social Equity in Design Award, 2019

The jury commented:

  • We appreciate the process the firm went through to deeply understand the specific needs of this vulnerable and underserved population and integrating those needs into the sanctuary-like design.
  • The shelter is equitable and accessible for women – and their children – of any background or circumstance. The project was executed with great sensitivity to the full spectrum of needs, with safety and building trusting relationships at the forefront.
