The Six Affordable Veteran Housing .
Architect: Brooks + Scarpa
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Description: The SIX is a 57-unit LEED Platinum affordable housing project that provides a home, support services and rehabilitation for disabled veterans. Offering shelter and comfort for disabled veterans, the SIX breaks the prescriptive mold of the traditional shelter by creating public and private “zones” in which private space is deemphasized, in favor of personal and group social spaces. Got Your “Six” means I got your back and highlights the loyalty and bond that soldiers have with each other.
