The goal of the project was to provide shelter, protection, privacy, and identity through a refuge for marginalized youth ages 16-24 who have been formerly homeless or aged out of the foster system, while fostering a sense of community.
Housing units are primarily single resident, with several multiperson
units throughout; these convex faceted pods on each side of a residential plaza, provide a sense of ownership and identity. These units set into the sides of the cliff-banks above a creek running through the site.
