Killefer Flammang Architects has announced the completion of Paloma Terrace, a new affordable housing complex by the Retirement Housing Foundation (RHF Housing).  The four-story building, located at 5000 S. Main Street in South Los Angeles, features 59 residential units reserved for low-income families.

Paloma Terrace sits directly across the street from Broadwood  Terrace, an 89-unit sister facility which opened in 2015.  The two properties arrive just as RHF - one of the nation's largest nonprofit providers of housing for older adults - celebrates its 55th anniversary.

The massing of the building, which was designed by Killefer Flammang Architects, is broken down into a series of vertical elements, with exterior materials such as wood siding, trespa panels and stucco.  A break in its façade opens a central courtyard to the outside community.  The courtyard includes an oval-shaped green space, a large playground and a barbeque area.

The project has been designed to qualify for LEED Platinum certification.
