Bethany Place
Belleville, Illinois

Renovation of a pair of Quonset huts to create new office space for a comprehensive AIDS service organization and transitional housing facility. Located in Belleville, Illinois, this former industrial plant was made fully accessible, a lobby was formed in what was previously an exterior loading area, and a new private outdoor courtyard was created on the backside of the building.
