SENIOR HOUSING COMMUNITY COMPETITION, NOVATO - First Award
CITY OF NOVATO
INDEPENDENT SENIOR HOUSING
This innovative competition and project addressed the challenge of self-sufficient seniors in California's exurbs.
By providing internal economic and social opportunities (offices, workshops, specialty agriculture), in combination with reverse 'granny flats' - housing for labor - seniors and work-force entrants are offered expanded economic and cultural horizons in their retirement.
The project was opposed by the surrounding neighborhood.
