SOAR (Social, Occupational, Academic, Recreation) is an institution that specializes in providing support services for adults with the most difficult behaviors. This small group program assists adults with developmental disabilities who would benefit from intensive staffing.
Due to the harsh environment surrounding the SOAR site, natural forest scenes were integrated to provide an outdoor atmosphere and relaxing interior environment. A compartmentalized space layout provides adequate space for SOAR’s various activities from individual meetings to group activities. This project design was a collaboration between Kijeong Jeon and Professor Kyu-Ho Ahn at University of Oregon School of Architecture.
