The major design and planning objectives were to create a sense of community by providing moments where residents can interact, thrive, and grow. This modular project built on the shores of Gissberg Twin Lakes in Marysville is home to 50 families who were previously homeless. Designed for Housing Hope and in collaboration with Designs Northwest, HKP Architects created a new community for families to enjoy their own permanent housing and take advantage of Housing Hope’s educational and childcare programs.
The site includes a community garden, children’s play area, interior courtyards, and lawn space. Views of the water are emphasized in the communal areas, as well as the southern facing units. Built to Evergreen Sustainable Development Standards, this project is energy efficient and utilizes sustainable materials throughout.
