Coronado Senior HousingCoronado, CA
Inspired by Southern California's bungalow and courtyard housing of the early 20th century, Coronado Villa—serving very-low- and low-income seniors—satisfies a previously unmet need for affordable senior housing in Coronado. This development offers its residents a private sanctuary in the heart of the island, while simultaneously establishing a community presence on an important city intersection. Its design is considered as desirable as any market-rate project in Coronado, and has been met with exceptional community pride.
Bays, balconies, porches, awnings, trellises, and roof-top terraces create significant indoor and outdoor spaces. Units front on a generously landscaped garden court with a bubbling fountain, custom ceramic tile accents, and site-specific public art.
Designed with an emphasis on sustainability, Coronado Villa benefits from cross-ventilation, natural day lighting, and a photovoltaic system powering all common areas. Located across the street from the city's senior center, central park, and library, the site's location and layout encourages walking and transit use.
