SATICOY - Tiny Homes Village

Lehrer Architects as Architects

Saticoy and Whitsett Tiny Home Village is the latest in the LA City’s program to house the homeless.  The site is an extremely thin sliver of land, nearly a quarter-mile long and at times only 20’ wide. It is located at an existing homeless encampment site, in-between the 170 freeway and a couple of industrial shipping and car park properties. The City has invested in bringing new shelter, utilities, and services to this location to serve the existing unhoused community and to limit displacement of its members.

The design brings a bright, colorful geometric pattern of blues, greens, and yellow to a true “throw-away” space.  It honors the homeless community with its colorful composition and strategically uses the existing trees to provide a shady, insular respite from life on the streets.

An 8’ tall acoustic sound barrier fence was erected along the freeway side, to mitigate noise and provide privacy.  The Pallet Shelter units are used as bright objects, carefully composed to shape the communal exterior spaces between, creating a series of smaller village communities along with the long site.  The larger village primary gathering spaces (x2) are located centrally, providing primary eating, and gathering spaces for all community members.
