Washington Street

La Quinta, CA

This is a total re-imagining of an existing very low-income senior housing community into a sustainable, vibrant community. The project consists of 72 completely modernized units, 26 new units, a community building with pool and outdoor gathering areas. The existing modest mid-century style is enhanced to meet current sustainability needs. Sustainable measures include natural cross-ventilation through thermal chimneys, day lighting, photovoltaic systems and simple shading devices. The project offers residents a private sanctuary in the heart of the desert while establishing strong sense of community. The site reinforces social connections and chance meetings which are essential to healthy senior life.
