CLARE MIDTOWN
2014 AIA-MN Affordable Housing Design Award
Minneapolis, Minnesota

This 45-unit mixed use building offers permanent supportive housing for residents with diagnosed HIV/AIDS and also includes a therapy suite, social worker offices and a large resident lounge adjacent to the patio and garden. Durable materials such as brick, glazed concrete block and solid wood cabinets give the residents and staff a stable home, and the introduction of rich colors and pattern to inexpensive materials such as paint and vinyl tile brings personality to the structure within a tight budget. The building is sited at the edge of a residential neighborhood along a major circulation spine within the city, and its bay windows mark both approaches to the building as well as the entrance to the neighborhood.

CONSTRUCTION COST
Approximately $5,100,000
