And this small dwelling is more meaningful than passers-by might ever guess. It sits in the backyard of a small, unremarkable home owned by Agape Development, where two paid counselors work with men age 18 to 25 who need help launching as young adults.
Dated to dazzling: Boulevard Oaks kitchen remodel spreads to home's whole first floor. Boulevard and Griggs Street to Loop South — to improve access to housing and help young men and women transition to independence. The census showed that tract has about 10, residents, one third of whom are considered low income.
The new two-bed unit in the backyard was a learning experience for a different group of young people, the Rice students who spent four semesters and 70 work days designing and building the structure, some of the work done off-site in a warehouse or workshops and some done on-site. Danny Samuels and Andrew Colopy, co-directors of Rice Architecture Construct, connected with Craig through a mutual friend, but the two men have done other work with nonprofits in Third Ward, including the well-known Project Row Houses, Samuels says.
In this case, students spent four semesters of elective studio courses designing, refining, building and installing the two-bed unit. For Samuels, a Rice graduate and professor in practice as well as a partner at Taft Architects, architecture is about solving problems, and this project solved a very specific problem, even if it can be repeated again elsewhere.

For the 25 undergraduate and graduate students who took the studio course at one time or another — anywhere from one to four semesters — it felt more like working in the real world. Now your stay in the Agape Presidential Suite can be an even greater experience. Should you be interested, please contact us in advance regarding available dates.
