30,000 SF | 3-Story Construction | Completed in 2023

Welcome House

For nearly 50 years, Welcome House has been committed to providing a high quality, moral, and open residential program to recovering alcoholics and drug-addicted men facing reintegration into the community as productive citizens.  The campus is located in the heart of Kansas City, Missouri’s urban core at 27th and The Paseo.

h|d Architecture was selected to design a new facility on their current campus.  The new building is a 3-story, 30,000 SF, podium structure with a combination of cast in place and stick frame.  The 1st level of the facility consists of offices, dining as well as group couseling areas.  The remaining floors are residential spaces, common areas, a fitness center, chapel, and other amenities.

The existing campus had 2 structures, one that encompassed all operations and housing, the other was vacant that was demolished to make room for the newly designed facility.   Once the new facility was completed, all housing and operations moved into the new facility and the remaining structure was demolished to make room for additional parking, and outdoor activities
