West of West wins with Sunset Steps

West of West wins the honor award from the AIA San Francisco as part of their Housing+ design competition.

"AIASF’s Housing Knowledge Community invited architects to rethink the San Francisco home after recent California legislation was proposed that would effectively eliminate single-family exclusive zoning; additionally, San Francisco approved the 2022 San Francisco Housing Element requiring 82,000 new housing units by 2031. The competition, which opened up for submissions in March 2023, invited competitors to imagine multiple dwellings on mid-block parcels and corner lots in San Francisco’s Sunset District. Jurors were asked to evaluate entries based on dwelling quality, constructability, the potential to foster community, as well as aesthetic and environmental benefits."
