Plaza del Sol
San Francisco, California

These 59 family-oriented low/moderate apartments are built around a series of interconnected courtyards. The buildings do not have corridors. All the units have light on two sides.

The major courtyard has a playground, landscaping, and a water element.  It is the main gathering spot for the many children living here.

A children's daycare program also uses one of the development's courtyards for its outdoor space.

The complex is built on a podium over a subterranean parking garage.
