Payto Architects has been fortunate to work with the Hattie Larlham Foundation, which provides services to adults and children with mental retardation and developmental disabilities, for many years. As part of their vocation program, Hattie has begun to provide safe work environments for persons with disabilities where they can learn valuable and rewarding career skills, all while providing a service to their communities. Payto Architects has worked with Hattie to create multiple design solutions for their recent acquisitions in the Cleveland-Akron area, ranging from cohesively themed dining experiences (Canal Place Cafe) and one-stop service counters, to animal care and grooming facilities (Brookpark Road Doggie Daycare). Payto Architects also works with Hattie to design renovations for day-time care facilities (Constant Companion)for persons with special needs, as well as group home facilities.
