STUDIO Architecture is excited to announce Attention Homes as a recipient of the 2020 Eagle Award for extraordinary accomplishments and outstanding leadership in housing and support services. Announced the evening of July 30th, the award honors STUDIO’s work reaching new heights to ensure safe, fair, and affordable housing for all Coloradans. The announcement of the award can be viewed on Housing Colorado’s website here.
Attention Homes, located in the heart of downtown Boulder, provides a safe, transitional, and affordable housing option for homeless youth. The facility is equipped with 40 units — each featuring its own bathroom and kitchenette — communal indoor and outdoor spaces, a large classroom, underground parking, and a restaurant largely employed by occupants. Having undergone extensive neighborhood outreach with meetings and discussions, Attention Homes aims to integrate the youth tenants into the Boulder Community in a safe yet meaningful way through their work and community engagement at the restaurant and other educational and professional opportunities. Additional information on the project can be found on STUDO Architecture’s website here and on the Attention Homes website here.
