This 50-unit courtyard housing design works within the constraints of the HUD 202 program to provide a true community
for low-income seniors. Two buildings form a garden courtyard that is linked to a generous community room and lobby.
The building containing the main public rooms houses frail elderly. Ambulatory elderly who benefit from daily walking live
across the court. The design is based upon a careful reading of literature on elderly housing, observation of successful
and unsuccessful projects, and extensive conversation and review with geriatricians.
