Situated within the remnants of an old farmstead, Jack Brown is nestled in the hillside, surrounded by beautiful meadows. It is a peaceful community focused on improving the lives of Native American adolescents overcoming substance abuse.

The design takes full advantage of the spacious site, using buildings and pathways to define outdoor green spaces perfect for outdoor activities including traditional tribal arts and crafts. Expansive meadowlands are utilized for traditional Cherokee stickball and tribal ceremonies. Big porches create sheltered gathering spaces inviting interaction.
