Holistic Treatment at DC Youth Services Center

DC Youth Services Center
Washington, DC, USA

HOK’s team designed the District of Columbia’s Youth Services Center to provide juvenile offenders with a feeling of openness and belonging.

The center’s human scale helps the young residents understand that they are part of a safe, supportive community.

The center features three distinct elements: the support wing (including police processing), resident housing and a community services area. A pleasant, highly visible, outdoor-oriented circulation system links these spaces.
