ONEEIGHTY WOMEN’S RESIDENTIAL FACILITY
TC Architects is working with OneEighty on a new drug and alcohol treatment facility. The challenge behind this design is to create a facility that feels residential, yet still meets all commercial codes. This 10,000 square foot Women’s Residential Facility located in Wooster, OH will have 16 treatment beds and in an effort to keep families together during treatment an additional 8 beds will be provided for children. To engage that more residential feel, the bedroom wing will include one residential style bathroom per every four beds in lieu of one large communal bathroom. Common areas at the facility will include a full kitchen with a large pantry, dining room for communal meals, a great room, laundry area and various meeting rooms, one of which will be available to current residents as well as the community for support meetings.
TC Architects assisted OneEighty with their site selection as well. They wanted their new site to be in close proximity to their existing facility allowing staff members to go from one facility to the other with ease and efficiency. OneEighty is planning to apply for a Federal Home Loan Bank Grant to help fund this project.
