Crest Apartments, 2013–16 (anticipated)

This is a Project. It was architect: Michael Maltzan Architecture and landscape architect: SWA Group and made for (as the client) Skid Row Housing Trust. It is dated 2013–16 (anticipated).

The Crest Apartments, 64 units of permanent supportive housing designed for disabled individuals and veterans formerly living on Los Angeles streets, introduces a new density to a sprawling LA suburban neighborhood with easy connections to public transportation and area resources. Supporting a new design equity—informed by residents—the light-filled complex integrates studio apartments with shared living spaces, supportive social services, and a mobile health clinic. The complex is Skid Row Housing Trust’s fourth collaboration with Michael Maltzan Architecture.
