We spent a special morning in the very best company at the ribbon cutting for the Salvation Army’s new Rathgeber Center. It was a pure joy listening to our city officials and Salvation Army brass talk about the safe haven and inspiration this facility will provide for Austin’s women and children in need. We are so proud to be part of the great Austin community who poured their heart and soul into the project to help the amazing folks at Salvation Army make an extraordinary new place.
GSC Architects joined an Austin team of industry professionals to donate our time and skills to create a new and inviting low-barrier family shelter that will provide a safe haven and on-site services for approximately 664 vulnerable adults and children each year. Working with a collection of artists, architects, designers and corporations, the GSC interiors team took charge of the corridors, entry vestibule, and reception, and created cohesive areas between those completed by different design teams. Wayfinding via bold colors and the “Flowers of Texas” theme painted on the walls by muralist Angela Effenberger lead families around the facility and to three different wings named the Paintbrush, Bluebonnet, and Yellow Rose.
