Window of Opportunity

“Window of Opportunity” serves as a second opportunity and a means for creating a new life for formerly homeless youths. 

The living space is arranged with a clear view of the window, which provides a private outlook into world. To honor the privacy, which was previously stripped away, the sleep/wake, getting ready, and self care areas are protected by a semi-private nook.

View of the self-care area located beneath the loft.
The getting-ready area is composed of built-in storage beneath the staircase. It is tucked under a nook of wooden panels which extend around the lofted bed.
The kitchen extends to the work area which along with the relaxation/ entertainment and dining area are arranged to create a clear outlook to the window.
