Interface: DROP-INN CENTER, Homeless Shelter

project :     DROP-INN CENTER, HOMELESS SHELTER
size :         3.300 m2
location :   OVER-THE-RHINE, CINCINNATI, OHIO
date :        JUNE 2009
type :        FREELANCE COMPETITION, 3rd PRIZE


The Cincinnati neighborhood of  Over-the-Rhine contains an abundance of outreach services, which through their individual isolation have created a pattern of compartmentalization within the
surrounding community.  In this project the inclusion of socially and environmentally sustainable constructs counter such developments, engendering a new interface.  A public face along Elm Street
provides for shared services and interaction between residents and community: laundry/dry cleaning, dining hall/meeting hall, pasta cafe, and an extension into Washington Park for a geo-exchange air
intake with projection screen.  Integration supports the mission of the Drop-Inn Center as jobs are provided for recovery unit residents, skill sets are shared, and community is established.
