Maple Park, Live Oak, Calif.

The affordable housing project consists of 2, 3, and 4-bedroom units with a central community building housing an early childhood daycare facility.

The project’s modern agricultural vernacular is based on materials and styles found within California’s central valley.

Colors and materials such as the bright citrus-themed accents were selected from materials found locally.

All unit entries are visible from the street and create focal points for informal interaction and gathering.

Maple Park’s narrow pedestrian-friendly streets create park-like courts of various sizes, encouraging community interaction.

Parking is tucked under and behind buildings, leaving the central open space for a playground and picnic tables.

The judges called the complex "playful and lively" and a much-needed addition to the area’s low-income housing stock.

Interiors boast plentiful daylight.
