The Jimmy Heath House is a 25-unit permanent supportive housing project for the homeless. This project consisted of connecting six buildings to provide 25 apartments (11 efficiencies and 14 one bedrooms), a casual common area and office/conference space.

Although the apartments comprise the majority of the 20,000 SF renovations, the focus of the project was the common areas that are designed to draw residents out of their rooms and into interpersonal relationships with other tenants.

The common areas include a conference area, multi-purpose/living space, common kitchen area, dining area and courtyard area. Access is limited by the presence of access control at the main entry points, 24-hour surveillance and 24-hour front desk staff.
