HHL Architects designed this unique half-way house residence for women recovering from drug and alcohol abuse. The objective was to create a “retreat” lodge-style setting suitable to help these recovering women matriculate from treatment into normal self administered daily care.

Working with DASNY and using the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services standards, this facility accommodates up to 28 women, some with their young children.

A full kitchen, laundry, and children’s play room provide areas for living and rehabilitation activities. The cathedral-ceiling common dining and living room provide space for group activities. Both rooms share a centralized stone fireplace and full window wall allowing natural light into the room.
