Hiatt and Irving St, NW 2012

Quite a transformation of the lot that once housed trailers:

Hiatt and Irving St, NW 2009

And here’s a rendering for La Casa’s replacement building which will go in front of the new building and a bit to the west on the lot above:

From Studio Twenty Seven Architecture:

Rather than function as a shelter, the “La Casa” project will provide permanent, supportive housing for forty men. Each living unit is designed as a single-person efficiency that will provide stability and predictability for the tenants as they immerse themselves in day to day living.

The building is seven floors above grade and includes a full basement. Total above grade floor area is 26,500 sf. In addition to the single efficiency units, the building will also provide a community room and exterior courtyard for the tenants. The project is slated to achieve LEED Gold certification.
