SENIOR HOUSING COMMUNITY COMPETITION, NOVATO - First Award


CLIENT:        
CITY OF NOVATO

TYPOLOGY:  
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.
