Transitional Housing: Whitestone Rehabilitation Center, Providence, RI.

The goal of this project is to design a transitional space to house men of a variety of backgrounds and ages who have underwent physical/mental hardships in life. The proposed symmetrical plan aims to provide equality, comfort, re-establish a sense of order and hygiene, and maximize storage and functionality. I hope to design a bedroom that is non-institutional, balancing privacy needs with an active modular co-working space within a minimal given space. In addition to functionality, materials, colors, and ease of constructions/affordability are three main elements for a comprehensive design. The tech pack comprises the exact construction details for each piece of customized furniture, and a full-scale table was constructed.
