East Park Villas
Seniors Apartments
Helena, Montana

This 38 unit apartment project was designed for a developer/builder using a mortgage subsidized financing program on a tax credit time line. I have worked in many different capacities on several projects of this nature throughout my training and career. Within the restrictions of a limited budget and specific unit type, design opportunities are found to create interesting and comfortable projects for receptive residents. This facility is organized around a central corridor, protected from cold winters, leading to common spaces which are emphasized on the exterior. A large building is broken down into smaller groups, four units per porch, and then individual elements, one balcony per unit. Materials are familiar, comfortable and inexpensive.
