Boys Hope Girls Hope Offices
Saint Louis, MO
What a privilege to help BHGH live out their mission of restoration to kids who need a little extra help to break the cycle of poverty, achieve their dreams, and become men and women who serve others. Formerly spread out on three different sites, BHGH turned to Vessel to re-imagine a unified campus that looks and feels like home but performs as two group homes and office space.
Vessel designed the stunning interiors which the scholars and staff ABSOLUTELY LOVE. Collaborating at the earliest stages, an integrated design team harmonized three unique finish schemes into the campus. Inspired by the organization’s corporate graphics, the boy's home expresses youthful masculinity through bold, bright (but not juvenile) colors. The girl's home achieves feminine sophistication through the use of soft colors, a coffered ceiling, and beautiful accents throughout the décor. The administration building expresses the comfortable professionalism of the organization’s leadership. Visitors are greeted with a warm gray color palette, sculpted gypsum wall panels, a sliding glass DIRTT wall, custom graphics, and a custom reception desk designed by Vessel. All materials were chosen to provide commercial performance in a residential setting, allowing the scholars to feel undoubtedly at home.
