“By all accounts this project is more than just a house, it is making a real difference in the lives of our most vulnerable citizens, giving them hope, support and comfort, and a chance for a new beginning.”
The Salvation Army Kate Booth House has provided a safe, confidential refuge for fifteen years for women and their children fleeing domestic violence. In 2004, NSDA was retained to design a new purpose-built transitional shelter for twenty-five residents. The client desired a building that was residential in character and image and which conveyed a reassuring sense of comfort and support for recovery, and offered the highest level of security as a safe haven.
