Designed to address LA’s shortage of supportive housing for the homeless, this home concept provides flexibility to meet the needs of a particular site, neighborhood, and bed count.
Scalable as an infill solution, Nest toolkit can be configured in multiple ways using various site types and a typical lot size of 50’x150’, or a combination of them.
