Fairweather Lodge

The nonprofit supports and administers to women with substance abuse that have children.  After their release from prison, this facility houses them for a year.  The new facility was designed to have a safe court for children to play in the center with the large “Big House” that contains offices, community kitchen, and classroom space for reentry to workforce.  The design promoted individuality, so that the residents would get use to having an exterior door, playground, laundry facilities.  Instead of an interior dorm layout, the idea of fresh air, connecting to nature with healing gardens, and vegetable gardens was central to the design.  Role included programming, space planning, building design, construction administration, and fund raising.​​​​​​​
