Horizon House Case Study

HORIZON HOUSE

A haven for those who make a difference

Location : Philadelphia, PA

Year : 2020

Since 1952, Horizon House has been a beacon of hope for individuals living with mental health challenges, substance abuse, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and homelessness. Giving adolescents and adults once disregarded by society the chance to embark on the fulfilling and healthy lives they deserve has been the pinnacle of everything Horizon House has strived for during its almost seven-decade journey. Because the Horizon House mission has always been to advocate for people, it made sense to rethink the space its employees do their important work of making a difference every day. In 2020, Horizon House partnered with Office Basics Interiors, Kitchen Associates, and Revision Architects for a complete renovation of their corporate headquarters, now located in the historic Market Street district in vibrant Philadelphia. No detail has been overlooked within the new 47,000 square foot space – including the focus on supportive and comprehensive HON office furniture solutions. From sturdy Accelerate® workstations to the adaptable collaboration of Flock® touchdown areas, Horizon House is proud to have established a dynamic, supportive, and holistic environment for its valued and hardworking staff.

“One of our primary goals for this renovation was to honor our roots and continue our commitment to serve the community in a thoughtful, collaborative way. The building’s structure reflects Horizon House’s values and vision: Openness, flexibility, and mindfulness. I believe it will serve us well as we move forward with a renewed sense of purpose and continue our mission to build a solid foundation for the futures of people in need and our hardworking employees.”

“This renovation was about reimagining what being a trusted community partner means. Beyond getting back to our roots and rediscovering the community where our services are most needed, we wanted an adaptable and efficient workspace that boosted staff morale and offered a holistic work environment to help the Horizon House staff and clientele grow, develop, and be the best they can be. There’s no question we’ve accomplished that, and we’re looking forward to many more decades of healthy connections and shared goals to come.”
