BKV is currently working with 180 Degrees to renovate Brittany’s Place located in St. Paul, Minnesota. Brittany’s Place was founded in 2016 as a shelter and program for girls who are victims of commercial sex trafficking or at risk of sexual exploitation. The existing shelter no longer serves the current programming and 180 Degrees asked BKV to reimagine the existing shelter. The project vision is to create a nurturing, safe, and structured living environment to assist the girls toward recovery and self-efficacy. The project consists of an emergency shelter, classrooms, common spaces, multi-purpose rooms and administrative spaces. Outdoor programming includes spaces to engage the natural environment though gardening, social and physical activities.
