Brisas de Paz

Desert Hot Springs, CA

Brisas de Paz comprises 62 units of affordable family housing in California Desert Hot Springs. In consideration of its surroundings—mostly newer single-family homes—the site's design takes great care to hide parking, to reduce the perimeter building scale, and to present street-facing porches and front yards. Employing broad eaves to shade windows, as well as cross ventilation with high ceilings to encourage air movement, the development's units are well-equipped to withstand the severe heat and strong winds of the Coachella Valley. A central lawn provides a safe, visible space for play and gathering; the Commons provides a large meeting room, a lounge, a management office, and a computer center. Site features also include a tot lot, barbecue pavilion, and swimming pool.
