San Jose Homeless Shelter, CA

Concrete Block,
Heavy Timber

With Chris Alexander and James Maguire to support “have not,” homeless to make a comeback to society. Exposed concrete block, reinforced concrete, heavy timber and shotcrete trusses were selected for durability, cost and to create a sense of simple authenticity in the structure. The visually stunning exposed shotcrete truss created intimate spaces in the dining hall and was included in the design to make the residents feel cared for.
