1 Riverside Transitional Housing

A California Project HomeKey site, dubbed Project Legacy. On a block-wide site at the edge of downtown Riverside, a collection of 1920’s bungalows are transformed into a transitional housing complex around a shared communal garden. An anchor community and administration building and ancillary gym and laundry structures complete the campus and provide services to tenants. New porches attached to the rear of each house provide shaded gathering spaces and a transition zone between the private homes and public garden complete with bleacher seating, large central meeting tree, activity plaza, vegetable beds, walking paths, stormwater swale and lush native planting.
