San Francisco, United States

Text description provided by the architects. 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.
