homeless housing bungalow preservation

Street Presence

By preserving the bungalows at the front of the property, the project maintains its familiar low scale presence at the street; a trait often looked upon favorably by neighbors and the city.

The front yard contains two new fenced in gardens for the residents

Connecting to the Community

Instead of gating-in the courtyard, we extended the new raised deck to the street emphasizing the project’s connection to the surrounding community. The openness of the project will reduce the stigma associated with permanent supportive housing.
