In Pacific Grove, just a stone’s throw from the edge of Monterey Bay, this 49-unit low-income senior housing facility is sensitive to the scale of adjacent neighborhoods in it’s modulation of forms and use of traditional building materials. Cedar shingle siding, wood trellises, curved bay windows, and balconies present a familiar scale and texture. A generous entry courtyard provides a gathering place and encourages a sense of community. Parking is tucked under the building at lower portions of the site and concealed from public view.
