Two HOK-Designed Projects Recognized in the AIA’s Justice Facilities Review
The American Institute of Architects has honored two HOK-designed projects in its annual Justice Facilities Review.
The AIA’s awards recognize the 10 best projects in justice facility design annually. Winning projects were selected for demonstrating quality of form, functionality and unique architectural responses to the complex issues facing justice design.
The LEED Gold San Francisco Public Safety Campus, designed by HOK in collaboration with Mark Cavagnero Associates, creates a civic anchor for the Mission Bay district. The resilient structure houses municipal services including the city’s police headquarters, a district police station and a fire station under one roof.
The team designed the San Mateo County Maple Street Correctional Center in Redwood City, California, to reduce recidivism and create a safe, secure setting to rehabilitate inmates through training programs, education, counseling, work programs and transitional housing. The 257,000-sq.-ft. detention center is LEED Gold-certified and incorporates ample natural light, radiant floor heating and an exterior rain garden.
Winners will be recognized at the AIA’s Academy of Architecture for Justice Conference in Cincinnati in October.
