This is a group home specifically designed for low-income single parents or guardians to ensure extra assistances in a safe and protective environment for their children. Using the model of a nest to balance protection and comfort a large atrium acts as a surveillance system much like an inverted panopticon.
The home includes these programs: Day Care Center - This is a daily day care service for children and includes after school tutoring for older children. Learning Center - This is a center that provides a computer lab and an online schooling program. Cafe/Gym/Lobby - these programs are to integrate public safely. There would be a receptionist in the atrium to give the public access to the cafe and gym area. Housing - Rooms consist of available space for up to 3 children max with an RA (resident advisor) on each floor.
The goal of this program is to provide a safe community for single parents to be able to get the time to work, find job opportunities, while knowing their children are in good care.
Programs used: Rhino, V-Ray, Illustrator, Photoshop
