This project investigates social services for the accommodation of homeless [in Auckland’s Central Business District] and marginalised people. It provides a bridge between being completely marginalised to being integrated into assisted housing and mainstream society. It addresses the need for accommodation and public interaction between the domiciled public and marginalised people. It is also an architectural dialogue between the marginalised realm for social support and the public realm. The merging of these realms is essential to for the integration of the homeless into general society.
