John A. Martin is pleased to be working again with long-time partner Brooks + Scarpa on two new wood-frame housing projects. The Six in the MacArthur Park neighborhood of Los Angeles is an affordable housing project for the Skid Row Housing Trust and will consist of four levels of Type V (wood frame) housing over a single level of on-grade parking. The project is targeting LEED Gold. Gateway Apartments is the second design effort underway and consists of 21 units of affordable housing near Los Angeles’ Venice neighborhood. The three-level, wood frame structure sits on a concrete podium garage and will provide approximately 20 units, housing formerly homeless and special needs individuals as well as seniors with disabilities.
