Homesafe

San Jose, CA

Exploring the shared living arrangement popularly known as co-housing, HomeSafe creates a safe and uplifting home for women and children fleeing domestic abuse. The design's six big shared houses—each consisting of four suites with shared living, cooking, and eating areas—gather around an expansive communal outdoor space. Bright colors wash over the buildings, warming the houses' exteriors; a childcare and counseling facility stands watch at the site’s “front door.” In careful consideration of the recovering families, Studio E Architects' design seeks to recognize the vital importance of privacy, and to achieve a careful articulation of its thresholds.
