Dove Center

This 14,000 square foot Woman’s Shelter for Garrett County, Maryland, contains administrative offices and multiple living units for temporary housing. The building was organized as a series of houses linked by a central core for community cooking and dining. The Entry incorporates a controlled Reception Area leading to either the Living Wing or to the wing of offices for the administrative staff. Discrete patios along the back side were designed to encourage families and the staff to utilize the outdoor areas overlooking the picturesque farmland.
