The largest emergency shelter in the Des Moines metro couldn’t meet the needs of the homeless population with its current facility. The challenge was to design a building that embraces the urban street yet provides privacy for clients. CMBA’s design provides an urban scale while client functions (offices, dining, and emergency dorms) are located away from the street. An enclosed, screened yard provides access to the outside without being on display.
