Project Place

Project: Gatehouse Project
Location: Boston, MA
Architect: Hacin + Associates, Inc.

This new headquarters for Project Place, which provides training, counseling, and supportive services to the homeless in Boston, provides greatly increased program and housing space to support their mission and goals.

  • Includes 14 efficiency housing units, commercial kitchen, dining room, conference room, classroom space, computer-training center and employee workspace, and retail restaurant space.
  • Built on an extremely constricted urban site, adjacent to a busy mass transit station and two crosswalks.
  • Daily communication and stringent safety program were critical to project success.
