Recently, Lionakis was selected as a recipient from the 2015 AIA/AJA Justice Facilities Review Program for the Stanislaus County Juvenile Commitment Facility. Our project was selected for publication in the Justice Facilities Review 2015 for demonstrating quality form, functionality and current response to complex justice design issues.

The Justice Facilities Review (JFR) by the AIA Academy of Architecture for Justice documents best practices in planning and design for justice Architecture including security and safety, technology, accessibility, community impact, sustainability and economic feasibility (first cost and long-term cost of ownership), longevity (lifecycle performance and operation), as well as aesthetic achievements are essential elements for identifying the success of these projects.
