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.
