LINCOLN ORANGE GROVE AFFORDABLE OWNERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
HERITAGE HOUSING PARTNERS
The Lincoln Orange Grove Apartments are a new typology for the design studio focused on providing affordable housing to first time home-owners. Drawing on the architectural language of Irving Gil, the new development integrates into its largely historic Pasadena neighborhood through a simple palette and form of white plaster devoid of unnecessary detail. ‘Nature’ is utilized to float ornamentally around the intersecting and offset forms, while trellises and corner windows provide welcome and transparency to entrances from the neighborhood.
