Boys Hope Girls Hope

The 19,000 square foot building delivers three core functions: a home for girls, a home for boys, and administration space. Each home provides living, dining, and gathering spaces for 10 scholars who live in residence. Live-in staff have private quarters separate from scholars.

A continuous basement unites the building below grade; above grade, three structures stand neatly in a line. Each primary function identifies itself through proportion, material, color, profile, and outdoor space. Fiber cement siding identifies residential space; red brick references the masonry heritage of St. Louis.
