Architectural firm receives state honor

Rochester-based SWBR Architects was recognized with the 2014 Excelsior Award for its work on DePaul Halstead Square.

The New York State American Institute of Architects honors the best examples of public architecture, focusing on neighborhood transformation, urban revitalization, site planning, exterior and interior design and sustainability. A 2.4-acre project, the design of DePaul Halstead Square addresses three distinct contexts: the commercial streetscape of Main Street, the residential character of Brown Street and the historic campus of the former Sts. Peter & Paul parish.

The project consists of a new 55,000-square-foot, 75-unit single-room occupancy building for mental-health residents, a new 24-unit affordable apartment building and a 14-unit Treatment Apartment Building on one central site.
