HOPE SF, SUNNYVALE BLOCK 6, SAN FRANCISCO 
As part of the HOPE SF program, LDP is working with Mercy Housing and the Related Companies on the redevelopment of Sunnydale Block 6 to design the 166 family unit housing project. The orientation of the buildings maximized sunlight to the interior courtyards, while the breaking up of structures into two buildings allowed for tenants to have sub-communities within the larger project. The site planning made maximum use of the site slope allowing for direct street entry into garages, without garage structures dominating the ground floor, nor requiring mass excavation. The design also includes support spaces such as lobbies, laundry rooms, media alcoves and property manager offices, located to maximize security and community building. Many of the lower floor units have direct entry off the street, either through ground level gardens or inviting stairs to the second floor units.
