"Rockwood Apartments offers quality, permanent supportive housing with services vital to help formerly homeless residents and people living with mental illness. The new community underscores what can be achieved when the public and private sectors collaborate to solve what many may see as a seemingly unsolvable housing problem and, in doing so, open a new horizon of hope for families and people who struggle with life's challenges," said Laura Archuleta, President of Jamboree Housing Corporation.
The firm envisioned a nostalgic design as an ode to Orange County's yesteryears with it's unique and charming Craftsman-themed architecture that rivals neighboring high-end complexes. The innovative project replaces under-utilized parcels with 3-story stacked flat, garden-style buildings situated around a central courtyard. NG+P designed a wide-range of amenities at Rockwood for all ages including a teaching kitchen, outdoor exercise stations, computer lab, and playground with life-size chessboard
The development consists of 17 one-bedroom, 32 two-bedroom and 21 three-bedroom apartment homes ranging from 727 to 1,202 sf. The project also includes 15 fully furnished MHSA units which provide crucial stability and support for homeless or at-risk homeless families living with mental illness.
Designed to achieve a LEED for Homes Gold rating, Rockwood Apartments is the Beyond L.A."Project of the Year" winner in the annual design award competition sponsored by the Southern California Association of Non Profit Housing (SCANPH).
