Casa del Sol, a four-story residential development in Sun Valley, includes 44 units of affordable supportive housing for seniors, with community and support spaces and a parking garage at ground level. A linear open space separates the building mass into two sections linked by circulation bridges and activity spaces at three levels. The project is designed using principles of universal design, healthy living and green building with a special focus on solar orientation, daylighting, and natural ventilation.
A straight-run grand stair at the court links all levels and encourages physical mobility for healthy living.
Resident amenities include a community room, learning center, gym, community garden, and communal areas for recreation and meditation. LEED Gold certification is anticipated.
