“Vision House owns and operates four transitional housing facilities in south King County. Vision House is building another complex for homeless children and mothers in Shoreline, Washington. The Vision House Jacob’s Well facility will consist of 20 housing units, a child care center, counseling offices and program space.” (Text from Vision House website.) In 2011, AIS partnered with Vision House to provide volunteer design services for Jacob’s Well. The Interior Design Networking Group divided into teams to design each of the areas. My team designed the child care center. Each team member submitted a design concept for consideration and mine was chosen. We worked as a team to present the design solution to the client, who decided to implement the design at Jacob’s Well.
