• Bethany Lutheran Church

    On-site Housing


    LOCATION: Menlo Park, CA
    AREA: 2,200 SQ-FT

    The goal of the Bethany Lutheran church and daycare was to provide new affordable on-site housing in an area with limited housing options. The design provides three one-bedroom apartments in two structures. Each unit has its own private outdoor space. The units are separated from the parking lot by raised planters and given privacy with gated entries and the strategic location of windows. The exterior walls are thickened for better acoustic and thermal performance. The residential-scale apartments are set back from the street and blend in with the neighborhood. While the apartments are simple and classic in style, they are designed to today’s high energy efficiency standards and will support the church community into the future.
