Banning Housing

Permanent Supportive Housing, Community Spaces and Services

Located in the heart of the Willmington community of Los Angeles, The Banning community will serve unhoused and housing insecure households. The project site links a busy commercial boulevard dotted with semi-industrial uses to a medium scale multifamily residential neighborhood. The proposed development is sensitive to the diverse nature of its edges and proposes appropriate programming, utilizing form and scale to bridge the disparate uses and bulk of its neighbors. The massing, in combination with a lush native landscape, creates a unique interior environment which promotes residents’ health and well-being, by maximizing open space, abundant natural lighting and ventilation to all units.

Transparency and connectivity of indoor and outdoor spaces are two of the main organizing themes in the building’s configuration. Each component of the building’s communal and service program space is connected to an outdoor space designed to extend residents' activity beyond the building envelope and offer opportunities to engage the larger community.

Creating a strong and cohesive atmosphere within, a rich array of communal and service program spaces are distributed throughout, and organized around a network of public and private open spaces to form a comfortable and nurturing living environment reinforcing the residents sense of place and pride in the quality of their home.
