Horizon House Headquarters

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Health + wellness focused new home for one of Philadelphia’s largest social services agencies

Three big ideas:

Daylight Equity,
Long Life/Loose Fit,
Healthy Interiors

Horizon House’s ‘people first’ headquarters expresses a holistic view of wellness for its 250 staff and thousands of program participants.  As co-developer and anchor tenant for the New Market West building, Horizon House occupies three floors with homeless services, health clinics, administrative services, developmental services, behavioral health therapies, a model apartment to prepare participants for independent living, and shared spaces for gathering and learning, including a green roof terrace.  The open and welcoming space reflects an open-door policy and brings new levels of collaboration and safety.  For Horizon House, a green building simply made sense for promoting wellness, saving operating costs, and signaling to staff and participants “you matter.”

“Beginning with the interview process through design and construction, Re:Vision demonstrated its ability to listen, understand, and willingness to partner with Horizon House. Their team took the time to learn our mission, philosophy, goals and desires and produced a finish product that not only met all of our requirements but frequently surpassed them. Anyone who chooses to trust their project to Re:Vision will not only be satisfied with the outcomes but can rest easier knowing that their team is fully on board. ”
