Project Date

294 Sherbourne is a transitional home for women built in mass timber, designed to respond to the specific needs of vulnerable women. The project integrates the public programs of a health clinic, a daycare, fitness studios, and skills training into a housing complex, creating a campus for learning, social support, and community. Using deliberate architectural features, the space seeks to help women rebuild their sense of self-sufficiency and community by fostering a sense of safety, reducing stress, and imbuing hope.
