SUMMIT VIEW APARTMENTS
MANY MANSIONS / LA FAMILY HOUSING
Summit View Apartments will be new construction of 49 units of permanent supportive housing. The proposed project will consist of four buildings, ranging from two to three stories, connected by walkways and interspersed with a terraced community garden down the hillside. The four buildings span out of a communal courtyard to give the property a centralized connective space. Locally inspired materials of stucco, wood, concrete, metal and glass are composed in clean and contemporary horizontal and vertical lines to help bring scale and definition to the project.
The landscape element is an integral component of proposed development and integrates elements of ‘Biofilia’ to have a restorative impact both to the site and to the health of the future residents. The site plan and building configuration are designed to afford every unit full advantage of the beautiful surrounding vistas, daylight and natural ventilation. Multiple and landscaped courtyards, pathways and shaded outdoor gathering places infuse the fan shaped configuration of the site plan and connect the residents to the outdoor throughout the day and as a part of the routine building use.
