CENTER FOR WOMEN

katarina ferencikova

The Women Center is a shelter for victims of domestic violence. The facility provides a semi-temporary refuge to abused women, as well as services and activities to support their needs. The site, located on the border of the demarcation line in Sodeco, is an abandoned three level house, with a large void space acting as a courtyard. The demolished slabs and absent interior walls created an opportunity for nature and light to invade the site from the courtyard inwards. The design strategy was to keep what remains of the building with interventions of additions on upper levels, and subtraction on the ground level to create the feeling of a protected and calm environment.
