In response to the critical unmet need for affordable student housing near the San Francisco campus of the California College of the Arts (CCA), a board trustee has developed a new mixed-use student apartment building that integrates affordability, community, and sustainability with great design.
LMSA designed the housing to emphasize interaction among students. The apartments are organized around a central lobby, common room, laundry room, and open daylight vertical stair connected by airy, light-filled hallways with views of San Francisco. The three upper residential floors accommodate apartment-style student housing.
Street-level commercial spaces are earmarked for tenants that support student and community needs. A multipurpose space flanked by garden courtyards provides for campus and student life activities.
