SAFE Alliance recently celebrated the expansion of Eloise House, a facility that provides forensic exams to survivors of sexual assault. We were honored to have been involved in the project having donated our design and construction administration services. Eastside Lumber made a generous donation of framing material and James Hardie Company donated siding material. The completed project can be found here on our web site.
Since the program’s inception in 2015, forensic nursing and sexual assault advocacy teams have responded to more than 2,000 visits from sexual assault survivors in Central Texas. With the overwhelming number of visits, the community need to expand was clear. The expansion of Eloise House forensic clinic provides two additional exam rooms, an additional restroom, and a shower.
Murray Legge Architecture provided architectural services pro bono. The project was made possible by generous donations of time and material by the following:
Southwest Corporation - Construction
Eastside Lumber - Materials
Julie Schneider - Interior Design
The section diagram shows how long high clerestory windows bring natural light into the small spaces while offering views of the sky and and surrounding trees. The high windows, while offering views and natural light make the spaces feel private and protected.
