From the architect. These 98 rental units of supportive affordable housing serve tenants with special needs, such as physical and developmental disabilities, HIV/AIDS, and chronic homelessness. Folsom + Dore is the first new building in San Francisco to receive a LEED Silver rating, and its sustainable features both reduce its environmental impact and curtail the energy costs borne by residents.

The entry garden court and green stair, filled with giant bamboo, provide a transitional decompression space between the homes and the hard urban environment outside. Residential parking has been greatly reduced, making way for a hybrid car-share vehicle and protected bicycle parking.

I like this project. But is it me, or does it seem like half of these apartments get almost no natural light?

I agree, this is a handsome project which seems only to be missing sunlight. Probably another example of the developer maximizing the QUANTITY of units at the expense of spacial QUALITY.
