St. Anthony’s Affordable Housing

In collaboration with the affordable housing non-profit, Pueblo Unido CDC, we are designing a pair of buildings for agricultural workers in California’s Eastern Coachella Valley. Each building will contain five apartments, and will be a model for future affordable developments in the area. The buildings are organized around two central courtyards that provide temperate outdoor space that will also help to passively cool the apartments. When completed, the building will exceed the energy standards for California, which are the highest in the country.
