Women’s Reentry Center receives AIA/Academy of Architecture for Justice award

We’re honored to be published as an award recipient from the AIA/Academy of Architecture for Justice, Justice Facilities Review (JFR) Program for our work on the Women’s Reentry Center in Windham, ME. The JFR recognizes exceptional practice and form in planning and design for justice architecture. Graham Vickers, the project’s lead Architect, seen below at last night’s ceremony.

“This project exemplifies our commitment to designing environments that support restorative justice. Providing a safe, secure, and normative space to help women transition back into the community is an often overlooked step in the rehabilitation process. Giving people a sense of purpose through education and programs restores self-esteem and positions offenders for success. We’re proud to play a role in helping these women on their journey to a successful reentry into society.”

Graham Vickers, Principal / Lead Architect

“Clear relationship between intention and resolution in design. Progressive programming and simple economical construction, with clarity of planning and lots of daylight.”
