A team of US builders and architects has unveiled a prototype modular housing design that it plans to roll out for Los Angeles’ homeless. The team, made up of prefabricated building firm HBG Construction, designer KTGY Architecture and affordable housing company Aedis Real Estate, intends to build three developments in the city. The projects have been awarded funding from a USD 1.2bn state grant that aims to build 10,000 units of supportive housing for homeless people. The grant was made available following the passing of Proposition HHH by city voters in 2016. So far, no housing has resulted from the creation of the fund.

The first of the modular schemes, to be called Hope on Alvarado, will be located in Los Angeles’ Westlake neighbourhood on 166 South Alvarado Street. It is due to be completed by early 2020 and will contain 84 one-bedroom apartments, each measuring between 37 sq m and 44.5 square meter. Each resident will have access to social services through Homeless HealthCare Los Angeles, as well as an open-air courtyard and bike storage.
