Sierra Bonita is a 50,000 sq ft five-story mixed-use affordable housing building
commissioned by the non-profit West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation (WHCHC).
The ground floor provides office spaces for WHCHC and other non-profits while the
42 one-bedroom units above are reserved for low-income residents with special needs.
Steel framing with long span decks are used to accommodate the parking grid below
and to minimize floor to floor dimensions. Parking for retail use and visitors is
provided at grade and resident parking is located in the subterranean garage below.
An outdoor bamboo courtyard provides a garden for residents from which access to
the units is provided. Each apartment has its own private balcony and common areas
exist for the residents as well as for public use. Laundry facilities and other
support spaces are also provided.
