Urban Awning Housing prototype in Whittier, a remarkable achievement made in collaboration with the Carpenters Union at their Whittier Training Center. This module serves as a pivotal learning opportunity, enabling us to refine our design, construction methodology, and partnerships with all involved collaborators. 


The prototype features two ground-floor 2-bedroom units and four studio units on the second level. With ADA adaptable kitchens and accessible bathrooms, each unit offers ample light, tall ceilings, and a balcony or patio. Embodying modernity, dignity, and comfort, it sets a new standard for contemporary and comfortable living.
