San Ysidro Senior Village

San Ysidro Senior Village is an affordable housing community for seniors who have previously experienced homelessness. The apartments provide permanent housing with case-management support for residents. Positioned close to Interstate 5, the project wraps sawtooth building elements around a protected courtyard.

The graphic quality of the exterior is intended to be seen at freeway speeds while also offering a lively pedestrian experience at the sidewalk and a protected garden on the inside. Residents enjoy direct bus access outside their front door and are a just short walk to a regional light rail station.
