Rupert Huse Veteran Center Ribbon Cutting
Upstate Warrior Solution, a non-profit serving veterans, active military, National Guard, and Reservists in the Upstate of South Carolina, celebrated the opening of the new Rupert Huse Veteran Center (RHVC) Wednesday with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The RHVC will provide comprehensive services and opportunities to help warriors and their families thrive in their communities. Since 2013, they’ve helped over 8,000 individuals with housing, employment, healthcare, education, and more. DP3 Architects had the privilege to partner with Upstate Warrior Solution to design the new Rupert Huse Veteran Resource Center.
The new space includes a common lobby, coffee/break area, training room, fitness room, and common conference room. In addition to housing the UWS staff, the Upstate Veteran Alliance Network also have a presence in the new resource center. Overall, the UWS plans to use the new center to broaden their reach, increase the number of veterans served, and expand their services.
The design inspiration is centered on the theme of honor. Intricate details like uniform colors and accents are woven throughout the space. Including the feature wall made up of military service ribbons. Soldier portraits, an oversized American flag, and a star-studded donor wall are just a few of the unique elements that make up the space. The materials and finishes are a mix of industrial and soft textures to convey a military-style that’s approachable and feels comforting.
Professional photos to come! For now check out the renderings of the space HERE.
