Johnson Court Veterans Transitional Housing
Peoples’ Self-Help Housing hired RRM Design Group to design affordable multifamily rental housing on a compact, urban infill site in downtown Santa Barbara. Jardin de las Rosas includes 40 rental units, averaging 955 sf each, of a mix of one, two, and three bedrooms with a concrete podium garage. The project is GreenPoint rated, incorporating photovoltaic/solar panels and principles of sustainable design. Its Spanish Colonial style continues the trend of upgrading the Haley-Salsipuedes corridor. The three-story building massing is broken down into multiple sub-buildings to fit into its context with the surrounding neighborhood. The site is situated in a flood plain, elevating the project four feet above existing grade. Its interior courtyard includes barbecue and children play areas. Prominent rose gardens along Haley Street will pay tribute to Peoples’ Self-Help Housing’s former director.
