Project Description

2011 RADA

Affordable / Merit

The judges admired this special-needs affordable housing project’s lush courtyard and patterned façade. Its 42 units all open onto the courtyard, which serves as a quiet sanctuary for the residents. This space contrasts with the front elevation, which holds its own on busy Santa Monica Boulevard. “We wanted the building to have a presence on the boulevard, so the thought was to make a very bold façade,” says architect Patrick Tighe, AIA. Sustainable features include photovoltaic panels that wrap one side of the building. “There are so many beautiful things about this project,” said one judge.
