Transitional Housing
Transitional housing programs offer low-income residences and support services for the
homeless. Transitional housing is generally provided after a crisis event and residents are
able to stay in the program for a range of time based on individual needs. The characteristic
needs of applicants can vary along with the typical programs, supportive services, and
accommodations available. The ultimate goal of transitional housing organizations is to
empower residents to become independent, self-sufficient and adequately housed
(Week 1).

The FavorHouse of Northwest Florida is a certified domestic violence center that offers safe
shelter, counseling, and various support/outreach services for victims of domestic violence
and their families. FavorHouse owns a transitional home available to women and children
leaving shelter and in need of long-term housing. Residents may stay up to 2 years, which
grants enough time for families to make life changing decisions, finish a degree or
vocational training, establish a career and save money for a permanent home (Shelter
Services). Safety is the primary need for women and children staying in transitional
housing. Individuals typical needs vary, but may encompass access to healthcare, legal
care, childcare, counseling, and assistance with finding jobs and permanent housing.

24

Transitional Housing
In talking to Terry Hill from Peachtree Landing, an emergency shelter for homeless single
mothers and fathers with children, when it comes to her clients she is very concerned for
their privacy. As a company goal, they offer not only shelter, but try to help their clients
become independent so they can have their own homes. Peachtree helps their clients
transition from homelessness into permanent housing, as well as assisting them in finding a
job.
Standard housing accommodations resemble dormitory-style living with multiple families
sharing one space. No private apartments are available. One80 Place in Charleston, South
Carolina is a place where the homeless families and individuals can stay on a temporary
basis. There are several designated beds for veterans as this area has two open bases. The
accommodations in the transitional housing are dormitory type according to Kathy who
works on staff at One80 Place. What she describes as a dormitory-style is bunk beds with
separate areas for the different genders, central bathing facilities again gender separated
and a central cafeteria where food is prepared, served and consumed. Bedrooms are
private with communal living room, kitchen and bathrooms. The family center holds 50
beds for women and families and the Mens shelter has 60 beds, 40 transitional housing
beds are included in that number.
25

Transitional Housing
Gathering spaces for FavorHouse include indoor and outdoor lounge seating where
residents can play, socialize, as well as hold informal meetings or discussions.
Peachtree Landing has bedrooms for their clients so they can be with their children, as
well as a living room where they all can watch TV. A separate dining room for meals
and a kitchen is large enough to feed everyone even when filled to capacity. Separate
restrooms are provided for both men and women.
The transitional housing routinely takes families and individuals who, while working,
do not make enough to afford housing. For a typical region in the United States, a
minimum wage worker would have to work 89 hours each week to afford a twobedroom apartment at the recommended 30% of their income level. (Pable).
Education is provided to help individuals develop skills needed to earn enough money
to afford housing of their own. Education is also provided to residents ranging from
financial to drug classes. Health care is also provided to residents starting with a free
health screening upon arrival. Counseling is continued after the residents have
accommodations of their own to ensure that they have the ability to maintain a living
situation independently.

Concept Statement

Haven House, a transitional home in Tucson will provide a safe and sheltering environment
for women and children in crisis. Gathering spaces will feature an earth tone color palette using
natural colors reminiscent of Pueblo adobe homes to create a warm and welcoming space that
creates a solidarity for the residents. Furnishings will feature a mix of soft textures and natural
materials with rustic finishes that reflect the regional style. There will be a contrast between walls
and furnishings to help give a clean feeling to the space. Good organizational features for storage
will help the residents feel more like being at home. Finishes will be chosen to help eliminate the
spread of diseases. Assurance will be made that all communal spaces follow proper building codes
and accessibility guidelines to provide an inclusive design for all possible residents.

Figure 1.

This color palette was formed using a


compound color scheme with blush
beige as the base color. None of the
colors are overly bright or saturated; all
are muted. Using natural colors, like
brown, green, and tan, emulates the
native plants and soil in the surrounding
environment. Muted and warm earth
tone colors suggest welcome and
durability, and help reduce stress by
creating a relaxed, homey atmosphere.

with similar saturation in the green, red,
yellow and brown. Balance and calm are
added with the neutral beige.

Justification of Design
W6A1

63

Which of elements and principles (light, color, line, texture,


balance, proportion, harmony, etc.) are dominant and subdominant
in the design, and how do they support the concept?
In the design of Haven House a balance has be created between a secure place for the
residence to live and a warm and comforting atmosphere that is focused on
community. The strong lines of the Pueblo revival style are echoed throughout the
space as well as a warm color palette and a consistency in finishes lending unity to the
spaces. There is a subtle use of texture on the walls with the use of wallpaper and a
stucco plaster that is balanced with the smother textures of the wooden furniture.
The furniture is simple adhering to the style of the building with large cutouts and little
upholstery. The seating arrangements are positioned to allow for conversation and
maximum efficiency to allow for chairs to be moved around for group lectures and
meetings in the gathering area. The apartments are near replicas of each other with
adjustments made in the ones that are ADA compliant as to not distinguish between
the individual residents. Harmony is used with the natural flow of the spaces within
the small apartment and the gathering spaces. Unity brings the space together with
the echoing of design and furniture pieces in the separate apartments and the colors
throughout the entire building.
64

How does your design reflect the culture and diversity of the client who will occupy the space?
How do the furniture, finishes, lighting selections, and custom elements meet the needs of the
women and children living in the transitional housing? Were you able to adhere to the budget
within client constraints?
The Design of the Haven House for a multitude of people to reside at the transitional
home. A Child care area is provided to allow for residence to have child care while
trying to find work or take classes. The two bedroom apartments have extra beds for
children or multiple adults if needed if the family is larger. There is room in the
apartments for cooking eating and TV watching in private allowing for the feel of
having ones own place. Furniture allows for extra storage and are easy to clean when
there is a turnover between residence and extra chairs are located in the gathering
area if more are needed in the apartments. Comfortable sofas and cushioned chairs
are provided for comfort and a homey feeling. Plenty of lighting is provided with
recessed cans in all of the spaces in addition to accent lighting allowing for a light and
airy feeling while providing enough lighting for everybody to see by. The budget is kept
within the constraints by using the same furniture throughout the spaces and simple
roll on plaster for the walls and easy to install flooring and ceiling treatments.

65

How did universal design application, code, or egress requirements


and environmental design choices influence the decisions you made
throughout the design process?

The design of the Haven House was centralized around using the
space as effectively as possible while ensuring that the spaces were all
code compliant and there were ADA compliant apartment choices.
Windows were added to the west wall to ensure enough natural light
available as well as for the egress of all of the apartments.
Environmental design choices were easy as a lot of Pueblo Revival
style furniture is made from wood that from sustained forest as was
the wood for the floors. The finishes where also low VOC products.
The end result is a functional and compliant transitional home for
those in need.

Reflection

The research of the transitional housing I felt was extremely informative especially when applying
to the design to make the space work better for the residents that would use the space. A lot of the
information I found really help me see that it was not only out of work people that may need this
service but that even with full time work many cannot afford to live without assistants. I also found
out that it is beneficial to provide space for classes and group meetings as well as child care for
residents. Another aspect of the class that I found helpful was learning about the Pueblo Revival
Style and figuring out how to stay true to the style of the building while having to bring in new
pieces especially with a style that is very simple and doesnt have a lot associated with it since it
stayed in a small part of the country. I found that I started to get better at compromising a little to
stay near the style and not spent forever looking for pieces to fit the style. The space planning on
this project was informative since it was difficult to include all of the requirements for codes and
ADA while fitting in all off the amenities that were required for the apartments. In the end a lot of
time went into making the space just right, with a good flow and making use of the entire space
while keeping it functional.

I enjoyed working with a team especially because it allowed us to split up a work load that would
have been too much on our own. The coordinating on the assignments was a good experience
especially since it took much more coordinating since they involved more of the design process
than just research assignments. The discussions about the assignment were great as well because
of the quick back and forth discussion that the online platform lacks. It was nice to deal with my
teammates via phone instead of just email adding that personal contact that we will be using as
designers with clients.
