Vitalia Apartments (Bascom)
The Vitalia Apartments are a new, modern style 5-story building with 79 supported units for formerly homeless people and families. At the entrance a large glass art wall leads to a podium courtyard designed by JETT that reveals an oasis of terraced planters and decorative paving.
Ample flexible space directly outside a community room allows for assemblies and celebrations. Intimate spaces were also provided throughout for respite and small group meetings. A small community garden area is backdropped by large shade trees which run along the property line and soften the transition to the surrounding neighborhood. 5th floor sky deck seating areas overlook dramatic southerly views of the Sierra Azul Open Space preserve.
