This project, designed to serve the needs of local agricultural workers and their families, features twenty-four homes grouped into four structures, which wrap around a shared outdoor “room”. A unique staggered building section provides unexpected volume and natural lighting. Tall windows on the façade hint at the 10-foot ceilings and split-level plans within. Timber trellises and canopies offer shade and create shadow patterns that enliven the crisp building massing. A boulevard-scaled trellis announces the pedestrian entry to the 2.2 acre site, and semi-private porches and patios invite residents to occupy the “threshold” between their unit and the court, while parking remains pushed towards the rear of the site.
