THE WILLOWS BRIDGE HOUSING
COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES / LA FAMILY HOUSING
In partnership with District 3 LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl’s office, a successful program and model for bridge housing developed by GGA and LA Family Housing was applied to the Canoga Park ‘Willows’ Bridge Housing and Navigation Center. After careful analysis of structure, systems, and infrastructure on the existing 16,000sf industrial building a program and budget were established which met the needs of both the user population and client requirements
With close proximity to public transportation which can connect users to nearby services, the program was focused to maximize sleeping and safe outdoor social areas providing the recuperative environment needed.
