La Casa Pokes Its Head Above Ground

Process—————10 July 2013

The crane is in place, the primary foundation work complete, and the only direction is up for La Casa Permanent Supportive Housing! This joint venture between Studio Twenty Seven Architecture and Leo A Daly is a new housing prototype for the District. La Casa will house 40 recently homeless men in single-person efficiency apartments that will provide stability and predictability as they reintegrate into jobs and self-sufficiency. “La Casa” makes significant programmatic and aesthetic urban design gestures to the Columbia Heights neighborhood. The building functions as mediator between the commercial development along 14th Street and residential development along Irving Street, with a two story glass lobby designed to create a visually porous interior that blends with the streetscape of Irving Street. At the same time, a community room on the second floor opens to a private courtyard, allowing the residents both public and private venues for group activities. “La Casa” is designed to a USGBC LEED Gold Standard.
