Wounded Warrior Home Project
The Wounded Warrior Home Project at Fort Belvoir brings together the Army, Clark Realty Capital, Michael Graves & Associates, IDEO, and numerous other partners to pursue a unified mission to drastically improve quality of life for the increasing number of Wounded Warriors returning to active duty at Fort Belvoir. The project aimed to understand the needs of Wounded Warriors and their families, how they live, and the role housing can play to make their lives more dignified, joyful, healthy, and rich with positive experiences. After more than a year and a half of in-depth research, the team unveiled the Freedom and Patriot homes in November 2011 as exemplary prototypes for Wounded Warrior housing. These two radically redesigned homes respond to the unique physical and emotional needs of these Wounded Warriors who served and sacrificed for their country in the line of duty.
