A Friendly Haven

AIDS Foundation Houston

Location
Houston, Texas
Area
31 Units

New construction of 31 two- and three-bedroom apartments and associated community spaces for women and their families.

The 35,000-square-foot site is located in midtown Houston and is bounded by low-rise commercial properties.  The site’s assets include two massive oak trees located in the southwest corner.

The design concept organizes the apartments on two levels around a central gated courtyard. The courtyard opens to an informal lawn, a play area and a pavilion at the southwest corner, preserving and taking advantage of the existing oaks. Each unit is accessed from the interior central courtyard through a private entry porch or balcony.  Public access is limited to a single main controlled entry, with separate gated entries for the residents’ use in accessing adjacent pedestrian ways and public transportation stops.
