SAFE is a merger of Austin Children’s Shelter and SafePlace, both long-standing and respected human service agencies in Austin serving the survivors of sexual assault and exploitation, child abuse, and domestic violence. SAFE’s Eloise House is the region’s first 24/7 facility solely dedicated to administering FREE Sexual Assault Forensic Exams (SAFEs) to sexual assault survivors. When Eloise House opened its doors in 2015, it was expecting to see 100 survivors during the first year of operation. In the first six months, it served 300. And in 2016, Eloise House served 589 survivors. This expansion project will help expand SAFE's capacity to provide this critical service for sexual assault survivors.
Murray Legge Architecture and Waller Creek Conservancy will be co-hosting a booth at Thinkery21 on Thursday the 24th of August. The event is sold out but if you happen to have tickets, come by to say hello and make a tiny paper house lantern. Choose from four different patterns designed and cut in our office with a CNC (computer numerical control) paper cutting machine.
The patterns are uploaded to the cloud based software and sent to the machine for cutting.
The machine has a stylus for scoring (can be swapped for a pen to write) and another with the blade for cutting.
The CNC cutter allows for extreme precision and duplication.
Come on over and check out our newly completed La Grange pool house project! Tucked into a grove of gnarly oaks on the edge of a limestone bluff, this shade structure and zero edge pool work together to frame stunning views of the valley below.
