Service Enriched Housing for the Entire Community

DESCRIPTION

Located on a 2.3 acre former school site adjacent to the largest park in San Francisco, the John King Senior Community is an affordable, mixed-use housing development comprised of 91, one-bedroom units. The complex is nestled into a steep hillside and includes a senior center with dining facilities for 100, a childcare center, and common spaces for the residents and greater community. The uses are organized around outdoor courtyards which provide separate activity zones for each use. Planting beds are provided in the senior garden for use by the residents. Natural daylit corridors, ample outdoor space, and stunning views to the south have all been prioritized in the design.
