This housing project for low-income tenants and residents with developmental disabilities near Downtown San Jose consists of 60 efficiency apartments and includes a group activity room, lounge, common kitchen, computer stations, on-site laundry and communal porches and decks. The two-story lobby is flooded with natural light  and augmented with a tile and light “hearth”. These spaces connect visually with the outdoor spaces and circulation core on the upper floors, enhancing both social interaction and visual surveillance. The building has the first living roof in San Jose.
L+U provided energy modeling from early design stages through documentation for LEED certification and Title 24.
