In a small bedroom community of the Bay area, this senior housing community is inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement promoting a residential character that stresses the horizontal and emphasizes clean modern details. Small retail shops line Mt. Diablo to provide continuity of the public streetscape. A public central outdoor courtyard offers an urban oasis for both the public and residents.
