WE Architecture + Erik Juul have been commissioned to transform Jagtvej 69 to become a turning point for homeless people. Where housing and green gardens are creating a platform for the meeting between locals and homeless and a path for a new beginning.
The aim of the design for the new building on Jagtvej 69 is to create temporary accomodation for homeless people, as well as provide a space for a wide range of activities that would help them in their professional and social lives, improve communication with the authorities and help them take care of their physical and mental health. The proposal will provide the neighborhood with a new social meeting place, a space containing urban gardens and semi-public activities.

Inside a white house lives a lady without progeny. She donates the land, home and attachments to build a home for the elderly. She only requires that the construction be done prior to her death. It all starts from the house; it is the center and the symbol.

Situated in Leidschenveen, the youngest district of The Hague, four apartment blocks have been designed by HVE architecten. One of the blocks is social housing; the others are regular housing designed for senior citizens. The initial urban plan of a long, consecutive strip of apartments was redesigned in order to create a visual connection between the separate park areas on either side of the building lot. As a result, four apartment blocks of four and five storeys were designed with a total of 81 apartments.

The project is located between in an urban area with a residential neighbourhood mainly with social housing for low income families uphill and an area with various public buildings at the lower part of the valley. The elderly day centre is in between these rather different social, programmatic and physical realities, thus celebrating both its private and public character.

Smith Consulting Architects-Designed Building Reuse Project For Downtown San Diego Senior Center Achieves Leed Gold
The new Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center, which was adapted from a former 17,460-square-foot auto dealership originally built in 1927, has officially received LEED-NC Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Located at the northeast corner of Fourth Avenue and Beech Street at 1525 Fourth Avenue, the once vacant building was fully restored to bring vibrant purpose to downtown San Diego, serving the region’s growing senior population.
