Vermont Villas, located in the Harbor Gateway neighborhood of Los Angeles, provides a permanent supportive environment that combines housing and health and service resources for chronically homeless veterans and homeless individuals with critical health needs. The four-story building features 79 studio and one-bedroom apartments, gathering spaces for residents, and offices for staff.
Located on a busy street in a transitioning neighborhood, the contemporary architecture responds to the quasi-industrial context with the use of distinctive metal panels giving definition to the structure at the corners. The residential nature of the building can be seen in the balconies, large windows and the welcoming public spaces including a teaching kitchen, a lounge, meeting rooms, and a large courtyard with barbecues and resident vegetable gardens.
