Pensione Esperanza SRO Hotel Wins Residential Architect Design Awards
Low-income tenants deserve dignity and a sense of play, and this model of design does just that…and a lot more. Thanks to colored stucco and steel that create discrete volumes. Wide aisles and hallways that are bathed in sunlight. And a skewed corner elevation that takes its cue from the plan and adds drama to the street. “It’s a quirky site plan and does a lot with a limited budget,” quotes one judge.
