Kelly Cullen Community in San Francisco, California by Gelfand Partners Architects + Knapp Architects

Friday, May 16th, 2014

Article source: Gelfand Partners Architects + Knapp Architects

San Francisco’s historic Central YMCA (1909), a nine-story Classical building located in the city’s Tenderloin neighborhood, has been transformed into supportive housing for the homeless and a health center for residents of supportive housing and the homeless. The adaptive use project created 174 micro-units of permanent housing and preserved the original sky-lit second-floor lobby, auditorium, full-size gymnasium, offices, and meeting rooms.

The LEED Gold health center occupies 11,700 square feet of a former locker room and support space on the ground floor, and the original swimming pool in the basement has been converted to a multipurpose room. Renovations in the 1950s removed the grand entry staircase, which led directly from the street to the second-floor lobby. This lobby has now been restored as the heart of the building, including a new grand stair, a small street-level lobby, accessible elevator, and improved circulation throughout the upper floors. Residential wings and 24 new units constructed above the historic gym wrap the light well above the lobby.

The small residential units—the Y’s former hotel rooms, approximately 200 square feet each—preserve the original window bays and gain spaciousness from their generous proportions and high ceilings. All units provide ample storage, cooking facilities, and individual bathrooms. A new radiant heating system, energy efficient lighting and ventilation, and the use of healthy materials support sustainability and resident well-being. Terrazzo stairs, tile walls, wood ceilings, and translucent planters around the new grand stair were chosen for their compatibility with the historic wood, tile, and marble finishes, which were meticulously preserved. The building includes 1,450 square feet of corner retail space on the street level.

Sierra Bonita Housing in West Hollyood, California by Patrick Tighe Architecture

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Article source: Patrick Tighe Architecture

The design challenge of this project—the first all-affordable mixed-use development in West Hollywood and the first designed and completed according to the city’s new Green Building Ordinance—was to fit the desired 42 accessible units on a 13,000-square-foot site and within a 50-foot height limit. The design used minimal exterior setbacks and reversed the typical unit layout—locating the bedrooms along the interior building courtyard and the living areas on the street side—to capitalize on views and natural light.

The project site for this residence is a 7,500 sf cross slope lot in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. The property is located near the top of a significant hill with panoramic views towards the Silver Lake Reservoir. The residence is situated at the rear of the property providing ample garden spaces at the front to buffer the exposure to the high traffic street.
