Project Description

This project develops a new collective housing prototype for the corner lots of Divisadero Street. These lots are frequently the most visible, irregularly subdivided and spatially underutilized sites.  Our project reclaims these sites to provide a network of public spaces in the form of common central rooms with outlying residences and common facilities. These rooms provide dedicated space needed for living together. A place for discussion to gather, organize and exchange. The prototype aims to address the need for shared civic space both at the scale of the domestic interior and that of the city.
