Case Study: Housing
The Bart Harvey
Affordable housing for seniors
This affordable housing for seniors is located in Seattle’s vibrant Cascade neighborhood. A green roof contributes to the replacement of green space on this tight urban site and provides recreation for elderly residents with a walking loop and P-Patch planters. Common facilities such as a library, computer room and activity room are located on the ground floor and contribute to a lively and inviting street presence. The work of a local artist is integrated into the design at street level, enriching a tradition of community artwork that is evident throughout the neighborhood.
