Images Description Credits
Located just south of Los Angeles’ downtown core and immediately north of the I-10 freeway, the mixed-use residential project explores ways architecture can create new possibilities for the building's highly vulnerable, dramatically under-served residents. The project’s 97 units provide permanent housing for formerly homeless elderly and disabled residents, a place for solace, support, and individual growth. Viewed from the freeway and the street, the project’s faceted form articulates the scale of the individual units within, expressing a dynamic relationship between the building, the surrounding neighborhood, and the urban freeway infrastructure. Communal spaces – kitchens, dining areas, gathering spaces and gardens – are incorporated into the building’s raised form. Medical and social service support facilities are also integrated into the plinth below, encouraging the building’s residents to reconnect with each other and also with the world outside.
