Five Keys Home Free Facility

Students from the School of Interior Architecture & Design collaborated with local nonprofit Five Keys Schools and Programs to design transitional housing for wrongfully convicted women who survived domestic violence. In this latest collab, Home Free and Five Keys worked with Academy students to provide stable housing as they re-enter society. Students spent the semester using their design skills for social good—transforming the apartment complex on Treasure Island into a tranquil, comforting place for 12 previously-incarcerated women as they begin their new lives on the outside.

Four Seasons

The School of Interior Architecture & Design was asked to participate in an exciting collaborative project with the Four Seasons Hotel, San Francisco. Students were asked to conceptualize the future of hotel lobbies and provide the Four Seasons with innovative design solutions toward improving the function and aesthetics.
